SCA (NSW) Bushfire Appeal


The SCA (NSW) community can make a difference


Show your support for communities and wildlife affected by the bush fires in NSW!



SCA (NSW) members have always been generous and willing to lend a helping hand. Many of us want to help those caught up in the horrendous bushfire crisis that has unfolded over the past few weeks and continues even today.

To help you take the guesswork out of which charities to support, SCA (NSW) has set up a Go Fund Me page. Funds raised will be split between the below charities to aid in the rescue and treatment of native wildlife and livestock, support firefighters and delivering crucial support to communities.


RSPCA – Protecting animals in threatened or affected areas and taking part in evacuations, gathering animals and taking them to safety.


WIRES – Rescuing and caring for sick, injured and orphaned wildlife who are innocent victims of the fires and drought.




NSW Rural Fire Service – Volunteer firefighters protecting your families, friends, your home and assets and your community.




     Red Cross – Emergency service teams responding to the fires across the country




Salvation Army Emergency Services (SAES) – Providing meals to evacuees and frontline responders and delivering crucial support to help communities make a full recover.
