How to help flood-affected communities

If you want to provide support to communities impacted by flooding, we suggest you donate through GIVIT.

GIVIT is working with the NSW and Queensland governments. Together they are managing donations of items, services and funds, and working with charities to assess and advise what critical and immediate support is needed.

Uncoordinated donations hamper services on the ground

Australians are incredibly generous, but we know from past disasters that unrequested and coordinated donations hinder recovery efforts.

Its important to not overwhelm charities on the ground. The GIVIT website captures all donations online.

Local councils, charities and support organisations can then reserve the exact items or services when they're needed.

Funding donations makes a big difference

100% of publicly donated funds GIVIT receives will be used to purchase exactly what's needed by people and communities impacted by storms and flooding.

GIVIT buys locally, wherever possible, to support local businesses.
