Fundraise for Us
Your fundraising efforts can help saves lives
People in rural and remote communities do it tough when it comes to healthcare. Distance and lack of services can mean shorter life expectancy, and higher disease and injury rates. Mortality rates are 1.8 times higher in rural areas than in our cities. 3 in 5 people in the country don’t see a specialist when they should. Mostly, because there isn’t one around. People in rural and remote areas are at higher risk every day.
Help us reduce barriers to good health
There are many rural health fundraising initiatives you can get behind in your community, in your workplace, or personally. Your fundraising helps fill the gaps in healthcare. Funds you raise will make a tangible difference to a rural community. That’s because we support the grassroots ideas when communities ask us to. As well as supporting life saving measures, we are rural doctors on the ground and connected to the places we work and live.
Host a fundraising event in your community
Whether you’re in the country or the city, a fundraising event is a great way to drum up community spirit and raise important funds for rural health. Your sporting club, school, workplace, health service or rural community can participate in fundraising programs in lots of creative ways.

Pass around the hat in times of crisis
We know that in times of natural disaster, remote and rural communities do it tough. Many can become cut off from lifesaving health services. Rural Doctors Foundation helps rural clinicians get back up and running after natural or man-made disasters. This lifesaving work is not possible without the generous support from our donors. You can help get our rural communities through a crisis by holding an event. Or simply start a fundraising page and reach out to your networks to get a combined donation that you can contribute to those in need.
Raise funds in celebration
If you’re sick of all that “stuff” we accumulate as gifts, ask your loved ones to give to others on your special day. Birthdays, weddings, and Christmas can all be an opportunity to help our cause and fundraise for rural and remote health.
Donating in memory is a way to leave a legacy for your loved one. If their heart was in rural and remote Australia, or in rural health, this is a meaningful way for their memory to live on in the hearts of those they cared for.
Contributions like yours are making it possible for people in rural and remote communities to stay healthy and well. Thank you!
