BlazeAid relies entirely on donations and does not receive any government funding. All donations go directly to the work of providing support to rural landowners after natural disasters.
We rarely have any drop-off points for donated items other than at our basecamps or at Kilmore East. Information about drop-off points other than these would be included on our website.
If you have any concerns about someone approaching you for donations or asking you to deliver goods to another location, please contact us to verify that it is, in fact, for BlazeAid.
Your donation to BlazeAid will help us pay for fencing tools and equipment, safety gear for volunteers, general day-to-day running costs, tool maintenance, etc.
Donations are not used to used to fund or support the Administration position in any way (refer below). All Committee Members and Camp Coordinators are unpaid volunteers.
If you make a donation to BlazeAid, we will not give any of your details to any other organisations. We will not contact you at a later date asking for further donations.
Our Donation Wish List includes some of the items we would like to buy or receive.
Posts & Wire, and “tied” donations.
Generally, property owners are required to provide their own fencing materials. BlazeAid prefers to buy tools and equipment from our donations, so that we can help on many properties, rather than a limited number.
However, sometimes property owners simply can’t afford to buy the fencing materials they need. Fencing is often uninsured or under-insured.
If you would like to donate to BlazeAid and have your money go to a specific basecamp, or for Posts & Wire for deserving farmers, simply let us know. You can use any of the donation methods outlined below.
When you send your donation (or notification of online donation), please tell us that you would like it to be “tied” to a particular area, or to purchase Posts & Wire in a particular area.
You can also buy plain wire, 70-90-30 ringlock, or 5’6″ steel posts and drop them off at the basecamp for distribution.
(The distribution of donated fencing materials is decided by the Camp Coordinator, who also considers local advice.)
Your donation is very much appreciated, and will enable us to continue to help families in rural Australia affected by the devastation of natural disasters.
