Donate to CWA Disaster Support

CWA of Australia works in conjunction with it's member Associations to distribute funds to those affected by drought, fires and other disasters.

Country Women's Associations raise funds through their networks of branches throughout the States and Territories. The work of these volunteers allows each association to distribute donations to the funds below without taking out administration fees. Many of these Associations have been continuously distributing drought relief  since mid 2008. Please explore their websites to see how you can contribute to the general funds and work of the associations


The individual State and Territory Country Women's Associations distribute funds to those affected by drought, fires, floods and other  disasters. Donations can be made directly to their respective funds via the other links on this page.
