Keep Flynn Flying!

Double your dollar.
Make your RFDS donation go further with Rio Tinto’s matched giving.

​​​​​​​Rio Tinto knows first-hand about the life changing work that the Royal Flying Doctor Service has been doing for over 90 years.

That’s why they’ve partnered with the RFDS since 2004 and supported two new Rio Tinto LifeFlight PC-24 jets.

To celebrate the partnership Rio Tinto and the RFDS have created a world-first mobile experience where Reverend John Flynn, founder of the RFDS and featured on the $20 note, comes alive through animation.

Every dollar donated will be matched by Rio Tinto to a total of $100K, with all proceeds supporting RFDS Western Operations.

Thank you for your donation!​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
