There are many ways – big and small – to show your support for RACQ LifeFlight Rescue.
Here are some ideas to help you decide which way of supporting is right for you.
Help us be rescue ready and save Queensland lives.
As a Save a Life Supporter, you will help deliver more than 6,500 lifesaving missions each year. Your donation will help keep our aircraft equipped with fuel, highly trained flight crews and medical equipment. Without this support, we would not be able to keep our helicopters in the skies above Queensland, saving lives. That’s why our Save a Life Supporters are so important to us, and why we would be grateful if you were to join us today.
As a member of our Support Crew, your monthly gifts will help keep the blue and yellow helicopters in the sky above Queensland—long into the future.
RACQ LifeFlight Rescue crews are called into action to save lives in the communities they serve. They face every kind of emergency that you can imagine, from cardiac conditions to farm accidents, on a mission to be there for Queenslanders in their darkest hour.
That’s where our Support Crew comes in…
These dedicated supporters provide the security of a steady income, safeguarding the future of lifesaving rescue missions.
In the future, this mission will get more challenging… With a growing population in Queensland, which is increasingly spread over the whole state, RACQ LifeFlight Rescue will need more support to continue going the distance to provide aeromedical care.
By joining our Support Crew, you will be helping us serve the Queensland community in the months and years to come, no matter what the emergency.
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 mission 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.
If you choose to donate to the LifeFlight Foundation through your pay, it:
“LifeFlight’s survival relies heavily on its own fundraising efforts and donations, so for me there is a feel-good factor, knowing that my small contribution helps in some way to keep the service going,” – Mark Taylor, Gold Coast City Council employee and Workplace Giving donor.
Workplace Giving is a way for businesses and their employees to support LifeFlight. It is a simple way to enhance your business’ involvement in the community and has significant business, employee and community benefits. Workplace Giving is a great way for businesses to demonstrate a commitment to the causes their employees are passionate about.
