Earth Alliance has stated that "all funds will go to assist critical firefighting efforts in New South Wales, aid local communities most affected by the wildfires, enable wildlife rescue and recovery, and support the long-term restoration of unique ecosystems."

DiCaprio's organization already tried to help out with another natural disaster in the past few months. In 2019, Earth Alliance also established the Amazon Forest Fund to raise money to combat the fires that devastated the Amazon rain forest in Brazil.
