Leaving a Legacy with RDA Australia

RDA relies on the generous support of individuals and organisations to make a difference to the lives of people with disabilities and special needs.  RDA Australia is a registered charity and company limited by guarantee.  All donations over $2 are tax deductible.  RDA Australia's role is to provide accredited training materials for coaches and volunteers and promote awareness of the work of RDA States/Territories and Centres across Australia.

Each week over 3000 volunteers at RDA Centres across Australia donate their time to assist over 3500 children and adults with disabilities who enjoy the therapeutic benefits of horse related activities

With your help, RDA Australia can increase our capacity for service delivery, enriching the lives of Australians with a disability.  With limited Government Funding available, your help is crucial for us to achieve our goals.


You can leave a bequest in a number of different ways, from leaving a percentage of your estate to a specific amount of money.  If you wish to do this, we recommend using the wording in the attached printable pdf document.

In Memoriam Donations

Making a donation in memory of a loved one is a very special way of remembering someone.  Asking for donations in lieu of flowers at a funeral allows family and friends to give a meaningful gift to support people with disabilities and the help that RDA can provide.
We will send receipts to all the donors and a list of all the donors to you with the total donated in memory of your loved one.

What to Say

The words below are our suggestion to include in the funeral notice.
"In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of [insert name here] can be made to Riding for the Disabled Assoc. Australia Ltd or online at www.rda.org.au.  Envelopes will be provided at the service.
