“Tradition does not die in the ashes but is carried forward in the flames”

Royal Auxiliary Air Force Foundation

 Patron:  HRH  The  Duke  of  Gloucester


The Foundation is wholly dependent upon cash donations and the support of volunteers to enable it to undertake its work.


Capital projects account for most of the Foundation’s expenditure. To date, we have been fortunate to have received generous awards from the RAF Charitable Trust, the RAF Central Fund and private individuals; RAuxAF Units have also made significant contributions, often through fund-raising events.

However, we still need to find over £1,000 to clear expenses incurred in providing and dedicating the Force’s Roll of Honour, and £10,000 is needed for the provision of a new Roll of Honour plinth alongside the RAuxAF Memorial at the National Memorial Arboretum. Ongoing administrative expenses, including the maintenance of this web-site, are commendably low, and, unusually for a charity, account for only a small proportion of turnover. That everyone associated with the Foundation is an unpaid volunteer is a major factor in keeping these expenses down.
