Bushfire Appeal 2020 – $321,000 pledged thus far
NB: This total is not live
This is a National Jewish communal appeal in response to the devastating bushfires affecting so many parts of Australia.
The Appeal is being led by Stand Up, the Executive Council of Australian Jewry and the NSW Jewish Board of Deputies.
For donations over $5,000, please contact Stand Up on 03 9500 2206 to transfer funds electronically.
All proceeds will be directed to Vinnies. Vinnies are on the ground helping people as they deal with the immediate aftermath of the fires and will continue to do so as people rebuild their lives in the long term.
This new appeal is in addition to the almost $600,000 collected in 2019 for Vinnies NSW and the NSW Rural Fire Service by Stand Up and the NSW Jewish Board of Deputies.
Stand Up has a long history in leading the Australian Jewish community’s collective response to humanitarian crises. It has proudly mobilised the Jewish community for many appeals, including the 2010 Australian floods appeal which raised $140,000.
All donations over $2 are tax deductible and a receipt will be provided shortly after the donation is made.
