Mayoral Appeal Fund 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.
