Bushfire Emergency Relief Fund

15th May, 2020

A special Girl Guides Australia badge was designed so Girl Guides, Girl Scouts, individuals and organisations the world over could proudly show they supported those impacted by the bushfires in Australia during 2019 and 2020.

All profits from the badge as well as individual donations went to the Australian Bushfire Emergency Relief Fund, set up by Girl Guides Australia to support communities as they recover following the devastating bushfires in Australia in 2019 and 2020.


Girl Guides Australia has been overwhelmed by the generosity and support from our Guiding friends and family both here and across the world.

Our Bushfire Relief fund has raised a considerable amount and we would like to thank each and every person around the world who donated.

The funds will be going to those Units who were directly affected and to programs to support communities to rebuild after the tragic events.




The purpose of the Bushfire Emergency Relief Fund is:

  • To support Guides affected by the fires
  • To fund Girl Guide programs supporting communities to rebuild after the bushfires.

To apply:

  1. Think about practical ways extra funds would assist your district and boost morale as it recovers and rebuilds
  2. Put together a simple budget and plan on how to make this happen
  3. Complete the application form below with these details and the amount you think you need to realistically make that happen. Email it to us at guides@girlguides.org.au
  4. We will get in touch if we need more information or to simply discuss your plan
  5. A decision will be made and we will be in touch.
