Become a regular giver

Help us to support vulnerable people in Australia and further afield by making a monthly donation. You can nominate the amount you’re comfortable with and we’ll automatically deduct it from your account each month. We’ll also keep you up to speed with how your donation is making a difference.

Make a donation

You can donate any amount at any time, helping to provide vital services to people experiencing vulnerability. Choose to direct your donation to where it’s needed in Australia or internationally, or give to specific areas like disaster relief and recovery – it’s up to you.

Leave a gift in your Will

Leaving Red Cross a bequest is a great way to positively impact the future without taking away from today. We can help you to professionally prepare your Will so that you can leave a lasting legacy for generations to come.

Become a member

Join the Red Cross community and play an important role in our humanitarian activities by volunteering, fundraising and locally promoting our work. Members have been at the heart of Red Cross in Australia since our very beginning.

Fundraise for us

We can help you to organise your own fundraising event, providing plenty of tools and advice. You can kick off an event on your own, with friends, as an organisation, or as part of a school or community group.

Volunteer locally or overseas

Contribute to your local community or to communities across the globe. Whether you’re interested in driving a truck, working in a store, introducing a new migrant to the community or supporting a small Pacific island community to prepare for disasters, we have a volunteer opportunity for you.

Become a young humanitarian

There are many different ways that young people can make their move as a Red Cross young humanitarian and nurture a more humanitarian society.

Give blood

Many Australians wouldn’t be alive today if ordinary people didn’t roll up their sleeves and give blood. Every time you donate you can save three lives. To make an appointment call 13 14 95 or visit

“We must face the future with courage, broad vision, sympathy and understanding. No call for help from our returned men or from the starving people of other countries must go unanswered. We, as loyal free people, will dedicate ourselves afresh to give and work until suffering has passed away.”
