Everyone in Australia can play a part to reduce human suffering and help those most in need.

Become a regular giver

Help us to support vulnerable people in Australia and further afield by making a monthly donation. This form of ongoing support is vital for ensuring that Red Cross remains there for people who need us most every day. You decide the amount you’d like to give and we will take care of the admin for you. We’ll also keep you up to speed with how your donation is making a difference.

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, locally promoting our work and fundraising. Members have been at the heart of Red Cross in Australia since our very beginning.

Volunteer with us

Contribute to your local community or to comminuty 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.

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.

“What I love about Red Cross is that we can all play a part. Making a difference isn’t hard and it can even be lots of fun. You can get together with friends for a fundraising bake-off, join our young humanitarians, or give a regular monthly donation. Easy!”
