Where your donation goes

Where your Red Shield Appeal donation goes

Public fundraising, which includes the Red Shield Appeal, raises vital funds to support The Salvation Army's programs across Victoria, Western Australia, South Australia, Tasmania and the Northern Territory. 

To ensure ongoing funding of our social programs, The Salvation Army invests 15.3% of funds raised into activities that ensure our financial sustainability.  These activities include the annual doorknock, donation processing, corporate and community partnerships, and managing our bequest program.

We are grateful for the enormous support we receive from the Australian public and strive to ensure that we utilise donations in the most effective way possible.
