ACMAV Health Promotion Trust

ACMAV has for many years maintained a strong charitable focus, previously executed via the ACMAV Foundation. With the gradual shift towards educational and health promotion activities to benefit healthcare within the Chinese Community of Victoria, the charitable focus is now embodied within the ACMAV Health Promotion Trust.

The ACMAV Health Promotion Trust is a registered charity through the Australian Charities and Non-Profits Commission.
