Why donate to Oxfam?

With over 70 years of experience, Oxfam has been working with local partners and communities to provide immediate and long-term solutions that help people lift themselves out of poverty. From 2021-2022, Oxfam reached 15.6 million people in 85 countries around the world, all made possible with the support of people like you…

Oxfam’s experience means we ensure communities are actively involved in the support we provide. We ensure communities survive today with safe, clean water, cash and food and prepare for tomorrow by getting water systems working again.

Is my donation tax-deductible?

Donations of $2 or more are tax-deductible. Regular donors will receive a consolidated tax receipt at the end of the Australian financial year (July). Once of donations will receive their tax receipt via email immediately after their donation. For more information, head to our tax deductible donations page.

When will my donation be debited?

Your regular donations will be debited from your credit card or bank account every four weeks. 
Your first debit will be made when you sign up online and the date of your schedule will be confirmed on the payment screen.

Where does the money go?

Your donation goes wherever the need is greatest and will support a range of Oxfam programs around the world. For a detailed breakdown of where your donations are used, please see where the money goes.

How do I cancel or pause my donation?

For any changes to your regular donation you can call our Supporter Services Team on 1800 088 110 or email

Why are you taking donations every four weeks and not every month?  

We want to take donations every four weeks and not every month in response to the rising frequency and severity in global crises. This is an important change we’re making to ensure we can continue support people and their communities.  
Additionally, 90% of the Australian population are paid on Wednesday or Thursday. By making this adjustment, supporting Oxfam should be easier and better aligned with your own personal finances.  

Do you have any more questions?

Please contact our friendly team on or 1800 088 110.
