About the Premier’s Disaster Relief Appeal

On 29 December 2010, the Premier launched a disaster relief appeal to help those affected by wide spread flooding in Queensland.

The Disaster Relief Appeal has been extended to include people affected by Tropical Cyclone Yasi.

The appeal invites financial donations only. Unfortunately this appeal cannot accept donations of goods or services. If you have quality goods or items you can donate them through Givit.org.au, a not-for-profit organisation that provides charities with access to donated goods.

The Premier’s Disaster Relief Appeal is a Trust Fund established to assist those who have suffered a loss due to natural disaster. All money raised by the fund will be directed to address the greatest need. The Premier’s Disaster Relief Appeal Fund is audited by the Queensland Auditor-General.

The Premier has announced the establishment of a Distribution Committee, a committee including representatives from the Australian Red Cross, to manage the disbursement of the donated funds. None of the appointed representatives will receive remuneration for their service, and none of the funds raised will be used to administer the fund with the costs being met by the government.

All donations of $2 or more to the Appeal by Australian residents are tax deductible. International donors should consult their relevant local authority to assess whether donations to the Appeal are tax deductible in their jurisdiction.

Recognising the hard work of everyday heroes

A series of events will be held in flood affected communities across the state during Queensland Week, 4-13 June, and communities will be invited to nominate their own heroes.
