You can do almost anything and make it a fundraiser. Whether you’re sporty, creative, or a social butterfly, YOU can raise funds to help protect and care for Australian wildlife. 

Start Fundraising

You can fundraise for WIRES as part of a corporate group, community group, school group, family group, group of friends or as an individual.

By fundraising for WIRES you will be helping us to rescue and care for more native animals, to provide ongoing wildlife information and education to the community and helping us to recruit and support more volunteer rescuers and carers.

Your support literally helps save lives as WIRES rescues and care for tens of thousands of animals every year. WIRES relies on community support for more than 98% of our funding, it is only through the help of our generous supporters that we are able to continue our wildlife rescue and care services.

Other ways to Fundraise

You can also choose to run a WIRES fundraiser through GoFundMe or via a Facebook Fundraiser if they are your preferred ways to fundraise. Funds raised through these platforms are receipted via the platform not by WIRES directly.
