The RFDS in SA/NT

Fundraising

Thank you for choosing to support the Flying Doctor in South Australia and Northern Territory. 

The Royal Flying Doctor Service is one of the largest and most comprehensive aeromedical organisations in the world, providing extensive primary health care and 24-hour emergency service to people over an area of 7.3 million square kilometres. By supporting RFDS Central Operations (SA/NT), you’re supporting the work we do in providing vital services such as eye care, community transport, wellbeing services, telehealth, speech pathology and dental care (to name a few), as well our aeromedical retrieval and patient transfer services.

Be inspired and hold a fundraiser to support the work of the Flying Doctor in South Australia and Northern Territory. It's very rewarding and the options are endless. You could:

  • Host a morning tea
  • have a casual or crazy hair day
  • organise a fundraising event such as a movie or trivia night
  • fundraise through your school or local community group
  • set yourself a challenge.

So jump on board and involve your family, friends, community group or school to help keep the Flying Doctor flying.

Graphic: Piper

We don’t know of many six year olds running their own fundraising campaigns! Piper Southern, from Naracoorte SA, has spent the past few months busily organising trading tables, a raffle, a 'guess the lollies in the jar' competition and a school dress up day, all to raise money for the Flying Doctor in memory of her Nonno, a previous RFDS patient who passed away in 2017. Piper has raised more than $7,000 (and counting!) – an incredible result.
