Governance & Funding

AVCA is a NZ registered Charitable Trust Board

(Charities Commission Registration #: CC553899) 

We began as a grassroots community advocacy group, fully supported by our volunteers who run the entire charity, from administration to community outreach.  We are not funded by anything more than community donations at this point in time, however as we grow our programs and outreach we will seek outside funding through the NZ Lottery Fund and CommunityNet Aotearoa.

AVCA is administered by a Board Of Trustees, who oversee the operation of the charity and make decisions regarding the overall focus of the organisation.

Our Current Operational Funding, as stated above comes from koha/ donations from community members, social events we sponsor, and educational seminars that we run.
