Do Good Annual 2018
Do Good Annual 2018
As social enterprises we invest our profits to deliver positive social change. As part of this we ensure everyone wins by focusing on shared value outcomes for our members, our communities and our business. So essentially the more people do with us, the more we can do within the community.
Over the past three years Alliance Banks have been working hard to make a difference where it's needed most and there have been many highlights along the way.
Two-thirds of us are now certified B Corporations with BDCU Alliance Bank® being awarded Best for the World Governance Honoree two years running.
The Alliance Bank® Do Good Awards, also in its second year, attracted record nominations across four categories - Outstanding Achievement, Community, Team and Business. Our winners were acknowledged for their extraordinary contributions in the areas of:
- Sport, kids and community
- Homeless support services
- Equal opportunity employment for those with disability
- Community connection
Do Good Fund - $4.75M
Alliance Bank Partners have committed more than $4.7M to the Do Good Fund, to support and facilitate a range of projects through social impact loans, grants supported by shared value principals and seed funding that attracts government support.
The Fund has been instrumental in building community sports facilities, developing education and mentoring programs, supporting social enterprise entrepreneurs, building health clinics and supporting apprentices.
Community Investment 2018 - $1.2M
We have applied the LGB Global Framework to assess our corporate community investment to ensure accuracy and transparency. In the last twelve months we have invested our time volunteering, developing and supporting community programs, micro-financing programs, investing in sponsorship and fund raising.
In fact our teams spent 7,961 hours volunteering in the community. That's 7.6 days per person. We also supported 80 local community charities, not-for-profits, community groups, clubs and schools, and saved 87 lives through the Red Cross Red 25 donation program.
It was a big year for us, our members and our communities, and this one is looking even brighter.
