Thank You to Our Supporters

A young, smiling boy stands against a wall looking thankful and happy.

We are so grateful to all the donors, businesses, volunteers and other supporters who make our work possible.

This year in particular would have been ten times harder than it already was if it wasn’t for the support of our community. When the work seemed impossibly hard, the generosity and confidence of you, our supporters, helped us to raise over $150,000 for our Covid response.

Like so many charities, when we were founded, we were run entirely by volunteers. Now we have a paid workforce, but volunteers continue to play a vital role in both fundraising and the delivery of our services. This year, we were gifted an impressive 4,247 hours; the equivalent of 106 additional weeks’ full-time work.

Aviva receives funding from the Ministry of Social Development; Ministry of Justice and Oranga Tamariki. This funding is imperative for the delivery of our services, but it does not cover all our costs. Every year, we need to fundraise over three quarters of a million dollars, and we are so grateful for every donation we receive.

The variety of ways the community supports us makes a significant difference. That so many people believe in what we do and want to support us to help thousands of people overcome the harms of family and sexual violence is truly humbling. Thank you for putting your trust in us.
