Regular Giving

Save lives from the ground

Save lives from the ground >

When accidents turn into emergencies, when life hangs in the balance and when medical support is out of reach, your regular ongoing support keeps the Flying Doctor flying.

Every 10 minutes, your Flying Doctor delivers the finest care to someone living, working or travelling in rural and remote SA and NT. Your recurring donation could be the difference between a cry for help and a sigh of relief.

Join our Ground Crew >

When you join our Ground Crew, you will join a special group of supporters who make regular donations to help us save lives from the ground, and bring vital health care to Australians in regional, rural and remote SA and NT.

Ongoing, recurring donations from our Ground Crew members allow us to ensure we have sustainable and regular funding to medically equip and maintain our “flying intensive care units” and bridge the gap in our operational funding.

You can arrange a recurring donation with your credit card or by direct debit from your bank account – you choose the frequency and amount – we look after the rest! With one receipt summary issued annually, we also make it easy for you at tax time.
