Frequently Asked Questions

Where does my donation go?

For specific projects, Avondale University pledges to use all donations toward the projects that have been outlined. In the case of general donations, these finds will be given to the area of greatest need.

If you would like to create a new project or campaign or donate to a specific area, contact Advancement to discuss your giving options. Please note that these gifts may not be tax-deductible.

How do I donate online?

For general donations or to give to the annual appeal, you can give through the South Pacific Division's eGiving site. This site allows for recurring gifts as well as one time only donations. For gifts associated with the alumni heritage walk or the prayer garden, you can make purchases through the Avondale online store.

What does Avondale do with my information?
