Prevent men’s violence against women

Donate Goods to Shelters and Domestic Violence Services

As a primary prevention organisation, White Ribbon's focus is on education and advocacy for gender equality and healthy relationships. We do not offer support services and therefore, are unable to accept any donations of material goods.

This page is a resource which can redirect you, if you are looking to generously donate items to those who have been affected by domestic violence. Please note, that this is not an exhaustive list and was accurate at the time of publishing in July 2019.

If you are an organisation which accepts donations of material goods and are not on this list but would like to be included, please contact marketing@whiteribbon.org.au.
