Disaster Relief Resources for Devastating Australia Wildfires
The bushfires in Australia have continued to grow and create devastation across the continent, harming many people and wildlife. Our thoughts are with those impacted and those volunteering to stop the fires. If you are interested in supporting the relief efforts, our Philanthropy Team has compiled information regarding the best ways to help and donate.
To ensure that your charitable dollars will be used wisely and effectively, donations should be made to well-established, qualified charities with a proven track record. Too often, fraudulent organizations that seem like legitimate charities are set up to accept donations from well-meaning people in times of emergencies and disasters.
Monetary donations are the most efficient way to support immediate, short-term relief efforts. The following organizations can accept donations and quickly put them to use as part of disaster recovery:
- Center for Disaster Philanthropy
- Direct Relief
- Friends of the Australian Koala Foundation
- Global Giving
- International Fund for Animal Welfare
- One Tree Planted
- Save the Children
