We take overcoming poverty seriously.
It’s part of God’s call to love our neighbour and seek justice for the oppressed.
It’s what drives our local Christian partners, who faithfully and courageously serve communities who face the impacts of poverty every day.
It’s why you care about giving to make a real difference, in real lives.
When you give to Tearfund Australia, you can be sure that your money is being used to create a more just and compassionate world.
Tearfund Australia was founded with a commitment to maintaining a low-cost administration – a commitment we have honoured since 1973. Today, Tearfund maintains one of the most efficient, low-cost administrations in order to maximise the funds allocated to project partners.
To give to an organisation that provides the most vital and fundamental of care to those who need it most, gives us deep satisfaction.

Tearfund in Australia was founded in 1971. We’ve been working in partnership to bring restoration, hope and renewal to communities in some of the world's hardest places for over 50 years. We respond to poverty and injustice through biblically-shaped best practice development approaches that work.
Not only you can be sure that your money is going to the right place, you can be confident that your money goes further in terms of effectiveness. We have a robust selection criteria for determining the projects we support. There’s an evaluation process built into the initial design of every project with regular reflections and evaluation by the community and local staff members.
I give to Tearfund because it’s just a tiny way I can practice the kindness and generosity demonstrated to me through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
At Tearfund, we intentionally prioritise projects in some of the most challenging contexts around the world because we believe we are called to be where the need is greatest. We call these ‘hard places’.
Donating to Tearfund means your money goes to those who need it the most – communities burdened not only by lack of food or income, but from oppression, religious persecution, discrimination, displacement, violence and exploitation – in places like Afghanistan, Pakistan, Somalia, and South Sudan.
