Online Fundraising


The St Vincent de Paul Society – also affectionately known as ‘Vinnies’ in Australia -  first began in Australia in 1854 and has been active in the community since, growing into one of the most well recognised and highly regarded charitable organisations in the country. Vinnies provides practical frontline support, advocacy and friendship for the most vulnerable members of our community. Our services are varied and respond to the specific needs of local communities.


Through our network of members, volunteers and staff, Vinnies has helped over 300,000 people experiencing disadvantage with accessing and financing a range of everyday necessities including education, utilities, food, accommodation and more. Last year in Victoria, we provided over $10.5 million worth of assistance, over 250,000 meals to people in need and made around 13,000 home visits. Vinnies is well positioned to assist with addressing social issues and shortages in the frontline, allowing us to advocate against the causes of poverty and inequality.
