The Bega Mayoral Appeal Fund

You can make a difference. Donate today.


In response to the Tathra Fire Emergency that took place on Sunday 18 March, a Mayoral Appeal Fund has been launched.

The community support of donated items has been overwhelming and extremely generous to date. Charity and volunteer organisations have now reached capacity for item donation. Therefore, the Mayoral Appeal Fund is the preferred method to assist the Tathra community.

How it works

All donated funds are held in a separate trust account. The management and distribution of these funds will be overseen by an Independent Advisory Panel chaired by the Mayor Cr, Kristy McBain.

The Panel will ensure all funds are distributed equitably and consistently to those who are directly affected by the fire emergency, in compliance with the Commonwealth charitable law requirements.

How to donate

Financial donations are tax deductable and can be made via:

  • Electronic bank transfer:
    BSB: 012525
    Account: 837535154
  • In person at ANZ Bega Branch
  • Credit Card over the phone, call 02 6499 2345 (between 9:00am-4:30pm)

Donations made over the phone will receive a tax invoice via email. Donations made via bank transfer will be able to provide their transaction details to the Australian Taxation Office.


For further information please contact Council on 6499 2222.
