Welcome to Aotearoa Vapers Community Advocacy - AVCA New Zealand

Vapers Helping Vapers

AVCA is truly a grassroots organization and our success depends completely on community involvement and support.  If you currently use smokeless alternatives to combustible tobacco, our goal is to ensure that these reduced harm alternatives become and remain available, affordable and effective.

Funding is utilised solely for the running of the charity, there are no salaries paid (all board members are volunteers) so all the money donated goes back into the community via our advocacy and outreach programs in the community.

Please consider making a one-time donation or set up an automatic monthly donation to help us help you.

AVCA is a charitable trust board meaning we are a non-profit organization. Contributions to AVCA can be receipted (upon request) for tax purposes.
