AVID Continues Its Support Of Youth Homeless Charity

April 17, 2023 | IN Media Release and News | BY AVID | 2 min read

In a demonstration of its commitment to improving the lives of Australia’s homeless youth, AVID Property Group (AVID) is continuing its corporate sponsorship of the Property Industry Foundation.

AVID’s national sponsorship for a second year running comes following its participation in the Foundation’s Charity Sydney Regatta last month which saw AVID taking home 3rd place in Division 2.

The extended partnership allows AVID to continue to support the work of the Foundation, which leverages its industry connections to increase the supply of accommodation for homeless youth.

In 2022, AVID contributed more than $50,000 through sponsorship and fundraising events to support the Foundation, which has a goal to build 300 bedrooms for homeless youth by 2025.

AVID CEO Cameron Holt said AVID’s team is eager to expand its support through its ongoing corporate sponsorship but also through committee positions, fundraising initiatives and event involvement.

“AVID is committed to delivering thriving, connected communities that bring people together and we’re thrilled to continue our sponsorship of the Property Industry Foundation,” Mr Holt said.

“Youth homelessness is a significant issue in our community and as housing affordability and the cost-of-living rises, so too does homelessness.

According to the Foundation, more than 116,000 Australians experience homelessness on any given night, and 42 per cent of Australia’s homeless population are under 25 years old.

“AVID actively seeks ways to make a tangible difference and is proud to support the Foundation, doing what we can to make a meaningful contribution as a developer,” Mr Holt said

“Our staff are equally as passionate about getting involved with many holding committee positions within the Foundation, lending their expertise, networks, energy and passion to assist with delivering a safe place for homeless and at-risk youth.”

In its longstanding relationship with the Foundation, AVID has participated in many of its charity events including its annual Regatta, 30-Day Fitness Challenge, Golf Day, Furniture Fund, Anniversary Gala, Hard Hat Day, Toiletries Wrap Day, Tour de PIF, Pedal for Homelessness, as well as worker bees for the Haven House Project.

Aiming to increase the availability of accommodation for youth homelessness, the Foundation has built 125 bedrooms that have given shelter to thousands of young people and has distributed nearly $30 million to youth homelessness causes over 25 years.
