As a voluntary organisation, AVA is reliant on monetary donations to fund the expenses involved in providing our services to victims and their families.
Donations to AVA come from a variety of sources, such as sponsorships by annual contributions (link to sponsorship page) or from families and friends of victims.
Losing a loved one is one of the most difficult things we have to face in life, and finding ways of coping is different for everyone. As part of that journey, some may choose to donate to a support organisation such as AVA.Some families do this by asking people to make a donation in lieu of flowers at the funeral service. AVA can supply envelopes for this purpose.
Others may prefer to include a bequest to AVA in their will as a lasting way of remembering and celebrating the person’s life. If we can help you with the wording of bequests or leaving a legacy in your Will, please call us on (08) 8212 6008. We can help you to ensure that your bequest is used in the manner you intend.
Our volunteers provide support to people with an asbestos related disease through home visits, phone calls and emails. If you are interested in joining our support network, please contact us and come along to a social morning. You could also help by distributing AVA brochures to your local medical centre, hospital, council etc, or handing out information brochures at a community event. AVA participates in a number of community events every year, for example the Home Show and Tradie Mate Show at Wayville Showgrounds and various country Field Days. These events are an important way to raise community awareness about asbestos.
