Supporting the community – People in Need
The ATHOC Foundation has been set up to enable the industry to give back to the community. The Foundation will help fund those that are in need to have a break away from the distressing situations that they are facing.

If you know a family who is going through terrible times and you believe that by being given a break away that they will benefit, you need to make contact with us.

The Foundation is a national foundation as is ATHOC and welcomes funding requests from all over Australia.
