Founded in 2004, the Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization, is the largest independent 501(c) 3 non-profit organization in the US, dedicated to preventing asbestos exposure and protecting asbestos victims’ civil rights through education, advocacy, and community. ADAO changed the way you can donate, to help you join the fight against asbestos in new and more meaningful ways. Now, you can personalize your donation in one of five formats:

  1. To donate on your own

  2. In memory of a loved one

  3. In celebration of a special life event

  4. To rally the support of business
  5. To create a challenge

Invest in asbestos education, advocacy, and community support today. Please donate today.

As an independent nonprofit, ADAO is completely dependent on the goodwill of our community and supporters to fund the work we do, from our asbestos awareness efforts to hosting world-renowned annual conferences.

All donations are fully tax-deductible. Know that we love monthly recurring donations, but anything that you give will help so much and let us know how much we mean to you. If every one of our thousands of supporters gave $10 we’d far exceed our fundraising goal. That’s right — the price of two lattes is all we need! It keeps us going, and fighting for a future free of asbestos-caused diseases.

ADAO’s Goals (2004)

  • Unite asbestos victims
  • Educate the public and medical community about asbestos-related diseases
  • Support research that leads to early detection, prevention and a cure
  • Protect asbestos victims’ civil rights
  • Ban asbestos in the USA and around the world
