How to Donate

Please Donate Now to Help Us Continue Our Work throughout Victoria

The CWA of Victoria needs your help to assist us to continue our work.

For over 90 years we have been supporting women and children, and their families, in communities across rural, regional and metropolitan Victoria.

Our principal purpose is to provide direct benevolent assistance to disadvantaged and vulnerable women, children and families in need throughout metropolitan, regional, rural and remote settings in Victoria.

Now we need your help to continue to do so.

You can donate to:

1. General Fund

The Country Women’s Association of Victoria General Fund supports all facets of the work of the organisation. This Fund supports:

  • communication across the organisation and outwards to the public and the media
  • training for members and classes for non-members to learn new skills
  • the structure of approx. 300 branches, groups and committees in Victorian communities
  • administration, compliance and distribution of emergency funds

2. Emergency Relief Fund

The Country Women’s Association of Victoria established an Emergency Relief Fund in 1934. The donations and interest in this fund are used at times of disaster such as bushfire, flood or drought in Victoria and at times elsewhere in Australia.

The CWA of Victoria uses the knowledge of its almost 5,000 members in some 300 communities to understand the impact that disaster has in local communities and on individuals. Members are also the source of knowledge that is used to build support strategies in these times of hardship.

Relief funds are raised/donated by CWA of Victoria Members and Branches and members of the public and businesses are also encouraged to donate.

Usually the relief monies are available to help meet household expenses of those affected by the disaster.

Relief Grants will generally be in the form of a payment by the CWA of Victoria directly to the applicant for expenses that are current and/or outstanding.

The Association does not deduct any portion of funds which have been donated to the Emergency Relief Fund for administration or other costs.
