The 2022 Melbourne Cup Carnival is partnering with GIVIT to support flood-impacted communities.

We live in a country that is highly susceptible to extreme weather events, and the current floods are having an intense impact on the people who live in the affected areas. Human life has been lost; homes have been flooded; horses, livestock and other animals have been lost. With your help, we believe we can make a big difference for these flood-affected communities.

Throughout Cup Week, and with the support of Network 10’s broadcast, we will be encouraging everyone to contribute.  The Melbourne Cup Carnival and its partners has pledged to ensure a minimum of $500,000 total and we hope to exceed this target.

100% of donated money received by GIVIT will be used to deliver assistance to people impacted by the floods that are occurring across Victoria and around Australia.

The Lexus Melbourne Cup is the People’s Cup – so let’s help the people who need it the most.

GIVIT is working with the Victorian, NSW and QLD Governments to manage donations. GIVIT works with local councils, recovery organisations, charities, outreach teams and community groups to identify exactly what's needed.
