How to Help

The main objective of The CFS Foundation is a non-for profit organisation, which has the main objective to provide vital and immediate financial assistance for the CFS volunteer firefighters and their families, should they come to harm in the line of service.

CFS Support Fund

Any donations made to The CFS Foundation will be a financial resource for families of volunteers who are severely injured or killed whilst performing their duties.

‘Shout Out’ Initiative

SHOUT OUT is your opportunity to say ‘Thank you’ to the CFS volunteer firefighters for their efforts over this fire danger season. On Friday 25th of May, show your support by wearing a yellow item of clothing, just like volunteers do and making a gold coin donation to the CFS Foundation. Organise an event at work, school or with friends, to support those who volunteer for you. Contact Natalia on natalia@cfsfoundation.org.au should you wish to take part in SHOUT OUT! Don’t forget to visit our Facebook page for more info.

Fellowships and Grants

The establishment of fellowships for CFS volunteers. These may be used to undertake specialised training courses, educational programs or to attend national and international conferences for continual improvement.

Trauma Teddy Appeal

Trauma teddies are given to victims of road crash incidents by the CFS volunteers. CFS volunteers do extra fundraising outside of their normal volunteering hours to purchase these teddies. The CFS Foundation is currently running a trauma teddy appeal to help fund their purchase so the volunteers can continue to focus on their community service. If you receive a call from our call centre, please support the people who support us.
