The AFA Foundation has raised $128,625 from numerous events and donations over 2014 and plans to distribute the money among several charity partners.
AFA chief executive Brad Fox said the community continues to “prove their generosity” in helping those that are “less fortunate”.
“Members and partners really value the opportunity and forum to make a difference to the lives of a variety of people. It is something the AFA deems very important,” Mr Fox said.
“By engaging with members and partners in raising awareness of chosen charities we continue to build on the community spirit the AFA is known for,” he said.
AFA Foundation chair Pina Sciarrone said the AFA community should be congratulated for its work in supporting the foundation.
“We have been able to help several charities who provide crucial support for those in need,” she said. “We believe our work in this area reflects the wishes of our members, who are very committed to ensuring the wellbeing of their local community, and the national community.”
Among the charities the AFA is supporting are the Make-A-Wish foundation, Prostate Cancer Foundation, Multiple Sclerosis Research Australia, Black Dog Institute, Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation, and the Cerebral Palsy Alliance.
The AFA is also supporting the Royal Hospital for Children, MND and Me, Little Heroes Foundation, Salvation Army, Ronald McDonald House Hobart, Women’s Housing and Legacy.
