CFA receives support to keep our communities safe in all kinds of ways, including donations, fundraising and partnerships.
If you're interested in supporting CFA, here is some information to get you started.
Donations are gratefully received. Many companies provide valuable cash, materials and services to support our work. A donation is defined as free goods or money with no benefits required by the giver. Donations over $2.00 are tax deductible.
You can choose to donate to a CFA brigade of your choice via our Brigades Donations Fund bank account (nominating the brigade you want to funds to go to) or alternatively to CFA generally via the CFA Public Fund which funds volunteer leadership & development training.
See below for account details for our brigades account and public accounts.
Fundraising is undertaken by brigades to raise extra funds in their local community and by the community to raise money for your local brigade, group, district, region, or CFA as a whole.
Fundraising involves any form of appeal, collection, raffle or activity which raises funds by selling goods or services from which a percentage is returned to the seller.
If you're interested in fundraising for CFA, please read the Fundraising Kit (PDF 1.5Mb). It will help you understand and meet CFA and the government’s fundraising guidelines and minimise risks to yourself and CFA.
Sponsorships and partnerships
CFA is fortunate to receive support in the form of sponsorships of events and other activities and initiatives from around our community. We also often receive enquiries from groups and organisations about potential partnerships.
