Power to think and do: it’s a gift from the Creator. Seventh-day Adventist Church pioneer Ellen White makes the statement to encourage exploration and engagement (Education, p. 17). Giving to Avondale College of Higher Education through its Think&Do campaign demonstrates your support for her philosophy. Journey with us as we accept the challenge of learning and discovery, of educating leaders, of developing quality infrastructure and of fostering creativity. And as we use this knowledge and these resources to improve lives.
Learning and DiscoveryAvondale’s research centres seek to give us a better understanding of Christian education, health and lifestyle, teaching and learning and spirituality and worship. Giving to the centres helps fund new projects, support employment of research assistants and improve information technology to build capacity for data processing and train more research supervisors.

Educating LeadersScholarships support students who within the context of Avondale’s values demonstrate academic achievement, leadership and commitment to research or service. Giving to scholarships, particularly new scholarships, gives more students an opportunity to gain “a greater vision of world needs.”
Developing Quality InfrastructureAvondale has a more than 120-year history. We're proud of this history and of the infrastructure that's a tangible example of it. But time takes a toll—the maintenance of our buildings and infrastructure is ongoing and costly. Giving to capital works projects helps maintain, improve or restore our historical capital assets and develop new assets, which provides the best possible facilities for our staff members and students.
