The Australian Fashion Council (AFC) has Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) status meaning we are now able to accept donations, and any donation over $2 is tax-deductible for the donors.

As we approach the end of the financial year, this is a perfect opportunity for you to support a vibrant Australian fashion industry while also benefiting from potential tax deductions.

Donate now


Our mission is to champion and advocate for a resilient and creative Australian fashion and textiles industry. Our purpose is to build a vibrant and inclusive ecosystem for our community through education, collaboration and innovation. 

Your donation will support the AFC to deliver impact for the fashion & Textile Industry through the following programs: 

  • Local Manufacturing: 

Extend our work on local manufacturing beyond Victoria to additional states to uncover the current state of play, identify the challenges and opportunities to build more investment from all stakeholders, including Government. 

  • Export & Trade:
    Develop resources and programs for international expansion, collective representation to position Australian fashion on the global stage and further develop skills within fashion and textile businesses that leverage technology and innovation.
  • Jobs & Skills:
    Map industry capability and requirements to identify gaps across the sector in order to develop industry skills and career pathways that create jobs of the future and boost the economic security of the industry’s 77% female-powered workforce.
  • Sustainability:
    Develop tools that address ways in which businesses can be more sustainable, benefiting not only the environment but also their economic viability and brand reputation such as impact calculators, responsible planning and ordering programs. 


Donating to the AFC is simple and can be done online through our our donation page. 

Every donation, big or small, makes a significant impact.

We greatly appreciate your continued support and belief in the future of Australian fashion and textiles. Together, we can ensure that our industry continues to innovate, grow, and inspire.

Thank you for considering a donation to the AFC before the end of the financial year. Your generosity will help us create a brighter future for Australian fashion.
