Contributing to the Avondale Experience
If you are an alumna or alumnus of Avondale College of Higher Education, we hope you remember your experience as one of the best of your life. If you are a friend of Avondale, you may have lived the experience through members of your family.
Donating to Avondale will help ensure the experience continues to shape the next generation of Seventh-day Adventist Church members and Christian and community leaders. Less than 30 per cent of Avondale's revenue comes from the government, and more than 70 per cent comes in the form of appropriations from the Seventh-day Adventist Church, grants for research and donations, which have become essential as Avondale continues to strengthen its claim as the premier provider of Christian higher education education in Australia.

How will Avondale use my donation or gift?
