Help raise funds for the NSW Rural Fire Service

$628,906 raised so far.

Please note that GoFundMe charges processing fees on donations. Follow THIS LINK  to our facebook fundraising page if you have a facebook account. Facebook doesn't charge any fees so your full donation will go to the NSW RFS. 


Our hearts go out to everyone affected by these horrific and unprecedented bushfires. Our beautiful country is in flames - the loss of human life, wildlife, homes and bushland is unfathomable.

Merivale CEO Justin Hemmes has donated $500,000 to the NSW Rural Fire Service to kick start our fundraiser and help give our heroic firefighters the resources they need to continue their work through this long and devastating summer. Please join us in donating to RFS and help us add another $500,000 to reach our $1million target.

To the brave firefighters who continue to risk their lives in extreme and terrifying conditions - thank you. You are all heroes. Australia is forever in your debt.
