Donate to help children

Make a difference when you donate to help children

Hunger, poverty, social disadvantage and violence affect children throughout Australia. Donate to help children or donate to homeless children with Save the Children’s evidence based Australian services

We are dedicated to helping children and young people get access to a quality education, healthcare and a supportive, safe home environment. Our world-renowned programs help keep children safe and on track for a brighter future throughout rural, regional and urban Australian communities. 

Donate to a Child in Need

We focus on helping disadvantaged Australian children in three areas:

  • Providing access to quality education and encouraging children and young people to become engaged with learning.
  • Helping families provide a safe, supportive and positive home environment.
  • Supporting local communities so children and young people feel safe, strong and connected.

By closely monitoring our work in over 197 communities, we constantly improve our programs to ensure Australian children are healthy, safe and engaged with their education. 

What’s the Best Way to Donate to Help Children in Australia

Donate to a child in need by supporting our programs with a one-off donation or a regular monthly donation. We assure 73 cents in every dollar you donate is invested to help children stay connected to their community and family. 

Support Young People in Australia 

Your donations to children in need help us fund our Mobile Youth Van (M.Y.van) program. This innovative child protection and education program supports Australia’s most hard to reach and vulnerable children through sport, digital media and music. Save the Children’s M.Y.van program has been designed to connect young people in under-serviced urban areas, rural and remote areas throughout Australia. Since 2012 this program has reached 1,000’s of young people through Victoria and NSW. Your donation can help make a huge difference to Australian children. Donate to help children today.
