Tropical Cyclone Seroja
Appeal 2021

The Tropical Cyclone Seroja 2021 Appeal is now open.


Funds raised as at 9am 7 May

The Wooroloo and Hills Bushfire 2021 Appeal is now closed.
$16,692,628. million was raised for those in need.

Currently, the LMDRF has made disbursements of $4,746,400. The Fund is working with local governments to disburse the remainder of funds.

The Lord Mayor’s Distress Relief Fund (LMDRF) was established in 1961, following the disastrous Dwellingup fires where 123 people were left homeless and the timber towns of Holyoake, Nanga Brook, Marrinup and Banksiadale were completely burnt out.

The LMDRF was established in conjunction with the State Government to provide financial assistance to individuals for the alleviation and relief of distress, suffering and personal hardships, brought about by any disaster or emergency within Western Australia declared by the Western Australian Government or for which the LMDRF Board considers assistance is warranted.

100% of all donations go directly to those in need

Donations of $2.00 or more are tax deductible 

The cost of administering the LMDRF is entirely absorbed by the City of Perth
so 100% of money raised can go back to those who need it.
