Donate to RDAQ

The purpose of Riding for Disabled Association of Queensland (RDAQ) is to assist people with disabilities to access the benefits that can be accrued from contact with horses, participation in horse riding and involvement in physical activity, sports, recreation and social interaction programs.

RDAQ is the State Administrative and Coaching Regulatory body for regional RDA centres throughout Queensland. Its role is to support all RDA centres through the ongoing education of general and specialised coaching as well as upskilling volunteers. RDAQ assists with and directs establishment of new centres.

The aim of RDA is to enable more people with disabilities to have the unique experience of horse riding and for some, especially those confined to a wheelchair, the opportunity to experience carriage driving.

Help us to make their dream a reality.

Your legacy can transform someone’s life

Most people would like to leave the world a little better off, knowing they have made a difference to a cause they really care about.

By leaving a gift to Riding for Disabled Queensland in your Will you can help to make a change. Your legacy will help provide life-changing support and services to our riders and help create a better future for people living with disabilities

Some choose to help by volunteering time, some donate money and others remember Riding for Disabled Queensland in their Will.

Leaving a gift in your Will is an easy and meaningful way to show your compassion and support. A gift does not have to be a large sum of money, as the true gift is the legacy you leave behind to help more Queenslanders with disabilities.

How to leave a gift

When deciding what to include in your Will, looking after your loved ones is your first priority. If you are considering leaving a gift to Riding for Disabled QLD It may be a good idea to talk over your decision with people close to you to ensure they support and understand your reasons for choosing to support RDAQ in such a special way.

A ‘bequest’ is a gift of personal property by Will and the term is now associated with all kinds of gifts in Wills. These can come in many different forms such as:

The residue of your estate. The remainder of your estate after specific gifts have been disbursed.

A percentage. You could choose to leave a percentage of either the residue of your estate, or a percentage of your entire estate.

A percentage. You could choose to leave a percentage of either the residue of your estate, or a percentage of your entire estate.

An asset. This could be land, shares, art, or other personal property.

A conditional bequest. In the unlikely event that your beneficiaries don’t survive you, you may wish to leave your estate to Riding for Disabled Association QLD Inc.

Thank you once again for your thoughtfulness and consideration
