Think&Do: A journey through giving with Avondale

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 through its Think&Do campaign demonstrates your support for her philosophy.

Journey with us as we accept the challenge of learning and discovery. And as we use this knowledge to improve lives. Your donation will support our research centres as they seek to give us a better understanding of Christian education, health and lifestyle, teaching and learning and spirituality and worship.

Giving to the centres will help fund new projects, support employment of research assistants and improve information technology to build capacity for data processing and train more research supervisors.

Donations above $2 are tax deductible in Australia. www.avondale.edu.au/giving.

School Library Shelves Are Bare – Your Help is Needed!

We need your help for the Solomon Islands book project.
