Aaron & Katie Rigg
Serving in Arnhem Land
* This donation is tax deductible
Why are some donations tax deductible and others not?
Gifts or sponsorship to support the relief work of MAF International (ABN 32 004 260 860) in Australia, made through the MAF Aid Fund (ABN 49 498 842 455), are tax deductible.
Not tax deductible
Tax deductibility on donations is only allowable by the Australian Tax Office in respect of approved relief and development activities. For this reason, tax deductibility is not available for sponsorship of staff working for ACMA (Australian Centre for Mission Aviation), CRMF, MAF Canada, MAF USA and MAF Australia (Sydney), nor for support of evangelistic outreach and other non-qualifying activities. Donations to CRMF are treated as 'non-development' and do not qualify for tax deductibility.
Aaron and Katie have 3 children, Harry, Ashton and Elise. Guided by opportunities which were only made possible by God’s grace, Aaron trained with the Australian Mission for Aviation and Melbourne School of Theology before commencing with MAF as an Arnhem Land Missionary Pilot in 2015.
For two years the Rigg family were based at Milingimbi Island and in addition to providing flights to support the aboriginal people, God enabled them to make meaningful friendships and share his life-giving word with the community. Aaron is now the Operations Manager at the MAF base in Gove, Arnhem Land where he manages a busy fleet of aircraft, pilots and staff taking bookings. Many organisations rely on MAF for transport, to enable them to provide essential services for education, health and church.
Katie is involved in the community, working part-time as an Education Assistant at the local Christian school in addition to her involvement in bible studies, Sunday school teaching and MAF hospitality.
I will praise you, O Lord, among the nations; I will sing of you among the peoples. For great is your love, reaching to the heavens; your faithfulness reaches to the skies.Psalm 57:9-10
