We're Better Together
Help communities and wildlife devastated by bushfires by donating to registered bushfire appeals.
The scale of the bushfires is hard to comprehend, and every day we learn more about how people, communities and Australia’s beautiful habitats have been affected. People all over the world are banding together to provide support and assistance for affected areas. The most helpful way to help is to provide financial support, so that this can be directed in the most efficient and appropriate way to communities and organisations assisting with disaster relief.
With many communities across Australia suffering unimaginable loss and devastation as a result of ongoing bushfires, The GPT Group has donated $200,000 to organisations supporting the crisis, including Australian Red Cross, The Salvation Army and NSW Rural Fire Service. These organisations are providing desperately needed relief in the form of first aid, shelter, evacuation assistance and mental health support to those who have lost loved ones, homes, businesses and their communities.
Here is a list of National and State Based organisations you can donate to to assist those in need.
