Through our website
You can make a secure one-off or monthly donation using your credit card on our website. This is the fastest way for you to donate, and you will receive a receipt by email. This is also the most cost-effective way for Life Flight to receive your generous donations.
To make a one-off bank transfer, simply log in to your online banking account and set up Life Flight as a payee. Our bank account details are as follows:
|Account name||Life Flight Trust|
|Account number||03 0578 0048481 08|
|Particulars||Your surname and initials.|
|Reference||Your Life Flight Supporter Number (if applicable)|
With a direct debit, you give us the approval to take a monthly, agreed amount from your bank account electronically. Because you don't have to do anything, a direct debit reduces your chances of missing a payment. To set up a direct debit please print and complete this form and return it to us at email@example.com.
Alternatively, you can post it to:
PO Box 14448,
To make a secure donation over the phone, please call us on 04 920 2242 between 8.30 am – 4.30 pm, Monday to Friday. You can pay using your credit or debit card, or we can set up a direct debit for you.

Supporting Life Flight without cheques
As you may be aware, New Zealand banks are in the process of phasing out cheques. Cheques have been amazing to receive over the years, and a large percentage of our donations come via cheque. We greatly appreciate your donations and understand that this may be a difficult time. Your peace of mind is our top priority. To get additional advice on how best to donate, we suggest you:
Visit your local bank branch - the staff will be able to advise you of alternative ways you can donate to Life Flight.
Contact us - we are here to help. Please feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 04 920 2242.
If you are unsure when your bank is phasing out cheques, please see the timeline below:
Life Flight are currently getting a little extra help from our partners at Unity 4 to raise awareness about Life Flight and give members of the public the opportunity to support us. We are a small team so this allows us to focus on other areas of the organisation.
If you receive a call from this number: (04) 901 6952 please be assured this is one of the Unity 4 team calling on behalf of Life Flight. If you are ever unsure about someone calling on our behalf, do not hesitate to contact us.
