We help serving Members of the Royal Australian Regiment in times of need

We make grants (not loans) to those currently serving in our Regiment, and their families, who need our support. We also make grants to worthy Regimental activities. All grants are processed through unit Commanding Officers and are completely confidential. We have given over $500,000 in direct assistance to the Regiment and its family. If you need help talk to your CO, your padre, your Regiment. Help can be with you within hours.

Don’t leave a mate behind. Donate Now.

Old Faithful needs your donations to keep the Regimental family doing its best. You can donate once-off, monthly, through your pay or by direct transfer or bequest.


You can support the Regimental family with regular or one-off donations. Your generosity means members of the Regimental family who are experiencing illness, natural disaster or other trauma can be helped immediately in their time of need.

If YOU or a serving member you know needs help please go to your CO who can work with us to help you immediately. Our assistance is completely confidential and our financial assistance is in the form of grants (not loans). Need help? We’re here.
