Donations of Goods

 Thank you for your interest in donating goods and supplies to Women’s Community Shelters (WCS).

Whilst we are extremely grateful for any and all donations, unfortunately our network of 7 shelters have very limited storage facilities, so can find it difficult to accept and receive physical donations.

If you have items you would like to donate please email our Donations Coordinator first to establish what our current needs are in each shelter.  Email:


Each Shelter often has a wish list of items they need and they change regularly.  Current  needs include: suitcases, Opal cards, Coles/Woolworths cards, Raffle prizes/prizes for fundraisers.


We have compiled a suggested list of gift cards that the women and children in our shelters enjoy.  Download Here.


If you have items that we are unable to take, please take a look at our compiled list of alternative charities that you may like to give to.


Regular Giving
Regular giving is incredibly important because it gives Women’s Community Shelters a sustainable regular income and the financial stability to dedicate funds to maintain our network of 6 crisis accommodation shelters across NSW. As a charity and not for profit organisation, WCS receives minimum NSW state government funding so we rely on vital donations to continue our important work.

Making a regular gift today will make a significant contribution to our goal of opening 2 more shelters by 2021. Making a regular donation is easy, just click on the link below and you will be guided through the process:


Your regular gift is tax deductible (donations of $2 and more) and you will receive your receipt monthly where you can increase or decrease (or cancel) your gift at any time – be sure to check your email as we will be sending you a copy of your tax receipt.
