Red Shield Appeal

The Red Shield Appeal is The Salvation Army’s signature fundraising drive which helps fund our vast network of social and community services.

The Red Shield Appeal began in 1965 and is promoted under our most recognisable symbol – the red shield. Each year, The Salvation Army appeals to the Australian community for donations to ensure we can give hope where it is needed most through our social welfare and community service programs.

Vulnerable Australians rely on these programs every day. Our services range from providing shelter for the homeless, assisting families in crisis through practical support and financial counselling, to guiding people with addictions through to a clean, healthy lifestyle.

The appeal kicks off with official launch events around the country where corporate and community leaders are invited to be our partners in mission.


There are many ways you raise funds; host a morning tea in your workplace, fundraise for a celebration or donate in lieu of a gift. We appreciate all fund raising efforts big or small!
