Territorial Commander thanks Disaster Appeal corporate supporters

Updated 24 January 2020

“We have been completely overwhelmed by the volume of support – financially and emotionally – by people, not just in Australia, but around the world. To you all, we want to say a very heartfelt ‘thank you’. Thank you for your enormous generosity and trust in The Salvation Army.” - Commissioner Robert Donaldson

The Salvation Army is overwhelmed by the support received from our corporate supporters towards our Disaster Appeal. This commitment, coupled with the generosity of customers and staff, has raised over $43 million in support of bushfire-affected Australians across the country.

All donations, no matter what size, are greatly valued. We will work tirelessly to ensure the funds are spent in the best possible way to give hope where it’s needed most. We’re here for the long haul and with our corporate partners' valued support, we can continue to help those who face the arduous task of recovering and rebuilding.

We appreciate our relationships with corporate supporters and would like to acknowledge the generous and heartfelt support of the following organisations.
