Donate to the Royal Flying Doctor Service

Join us in supporting the Royal Flying Doctor Service and help bring health care to rural and remote areas.

What is the Royal Flying Doctor Service?

Since 1928 the Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS) has been taking health care to Australia's furthest corners, using the latest in aviation, medical and communications technology. As a not-for-profit organisation, it relies on support from government and donations from the community and corporate sector.

Ergon Energy has supported the RFDS in Queensland since 2000. In that time, more than 140,000 of our customers and employees have raised over $13 million to help provide emergency and routine medical care facilities throughout the State.

Dr Charles Ellis from the Royal Flying Doctor Service speaks of the value of donations from Ergon Energy Retail's customers in this short RFDS video.

How to donate

Ongoing donations

If you want to help support the RFDS, you can make ongoing donations through your electricity bills. Every cent of your donation is sent directly to the RFDS to support their Aircraft Replacement Program and help update vital medical equipment.

You can quickly and easily subscribe to make a $2 or $5 donation per quarter via My Account.

Subscriptions are prorated based on the number of days your bills cover, so the amount you pay each month or quarter may vary slightly. For example, your $2 quarterly subscription applied to a 90-day bill will be $1.97 or on a 31-day monthly bill it will be $0.68.

Alternatively, you can complete our online form and one of our representatives will process your request. You RFDS donation will appear from your next Ergon Energy Retail bill.

Please note your donation is completely voluntary. You can withdraw at any time by calling us on 13 10 46 (7am – 6.30pm, Mon – Fri).

One-off donations

You can also support the RFDS by making a one-off donation through the RFDS website.
