Online Fundraising


The St Vincent de Paul Society (fondly known as ‘Vinnies’) has been assisting people experiencing disadvantage in communities across Australia for over 160 years. We offer “a hand up” by respecting each individual’s dignity, helping them to rebuild their lives on their own terms.


With a presence in over 650 communities across Australia, Vinnies helps more than 1.8 million Aussies each year.


Vinnies 40,000 members and volunteers undertake life-changing work in each Australian community every single day.  We visit families in their homes providing person-to-person practical assistance to get individuals and families back on their feet.


In NSW alone Vinnies’ 100 community support services provide assistance to 400,000 people each year experiencing poverty, disadvantage, homelessness, family violence, disability, mental health, addiction, and unemployment.


Every day, Vinnies is on the ground, helping those who need it most in each local community. 


We are a voice for the voiceless and a friend you can turn to when you feel there is no hope.
