Since 2004, ADAO has become the largest 501(c)(3) nonprofit in the U.S. dedicated to protecting public health, consumer safety, asbestos victims’ civil rights, and the environment. As an independent nonprofit, we rely entirely on the goodwill of our community to maintain and expand our education, advocacy, and community support efforts.

ADAO now has three ways you can support our work as an individual, with the support of your network, or in honor of a loved one. Every contribution ADAO receives goes directly toward our advocacy and educational efforts.

  1. To donate on your own

    As we open all of these new opportunities for supporters to get involved with ADAO’s work, we continue to welcome your individual contributions. Each and every donation contributes to the success of ADAO and the fight against asbestos and asbestos-related illnesses.

  2. Honor a loved one

    Honor your loved one with a personal fundraising page hosted on the ADAO website. Create a page with custom photos and stories and share with your network to increase your impact.


  3. Celebrate a milestone

It’s never been easier to dedicate a special event to a meaningful cause. Whether you’re getting married, celebrating a birthday, completing a marathon, or practicing social corporate responsibility, turn any event into an ADAO fundraiser.


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 (according to the law). 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 (est. 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
