One of the most effective ways employees and employers can support LifeFlight is through Workplace Giving.

LifeFlight is committed to saving Queensland lives. Making regular donations through your pay helps fund ongoing operational expenses including fuel, maintenance, medical supplies and training.

You simply never know if you, a loved one or even a workmate will need our service. Each rescue missions costs more than $12,500. Think of these donations as your little investment; protecting yourself, your family and the community against the ‘what ifs’.

Workplace Giving is a feel-good exercise and it’s so simple. Your donation is deducted from your gross salary each pay, so you receive an immediate tax benefit.

Your workplace can support your efforts further by matching your contribution dollar-for-dollar, which means your generous donations are doubled. Talk to your employer today about matching your gift.
