Making a difference this festive season 

Many people in Australia will be doing it tough this festive season.  

At this time of year, the generosity of time and giving back to people in need are just some of the ways in which we can help others less fortunate. 

Be a part of a brighter tomorrow for all families this holiday season so it’s a merry Christmas for everybody. 

Give back

The Benevolent Society has been supporting Australian communities, children, families, older people and people with disability for more than 200 years.  

You can support us on our mission to help people live their best life this festive season and beyond by making a donation, volunteering with us or joining our campaigns for change.  


A donation to The Benevolent Society provides valuable funds for services that vulnerable Australians need to live their best life. 

“Any tax-deductible gift is greatly appreciated and will be used where it is most needed and will have the greatest impact,” says Gina Grimaldi, our Philanthropy & Fundraising Manager.

“Every bit counts, especially for the Australians we are helping to live their best lives. There are many ways to donate – you can give regularly or as a once-off; start fundraising; consider corporate giving or leave a gift in your will. Your support will make a difference to those in need.”

Our volunteers are the heart of what we do. Volunteers help us reach more people in more places; a small contribution can make a big difference in your community. 

“We are always looking for more passionate and energetic people to join us in this important work,” says Kirsty Stewart, The Benevolent Society’s People & Cultures Processes Manager. 

“Your contribution, no matter how big or small, can make a difference in your community and in people's lives. Volunteering is a great way to stay involved in your community, meet new people, learn new skills or extend your current skills and knowledge.
