AWA Community Investment

27 March 2020 |Feature
AWA Alliance Bank is a social enterprise that believes active kids and a more equitable community will foster positive social change.

That's why they work with local sporting associations and charities, such as the Ocean Grove Surf Life Saving Club and Give Where You Live. Through their support they  make a positive contribution that aims to enrich the lives of members of their communities. 

At Ocean Grove the new multi-million dollar Surf Club was realised through a partnership between the Club and the Barwon Coast Council, however to complete the fitout additional government funding was needed, so AWA Alliance Bank provided a social impact loan of $600K to secure it. This last stage of the re-development meant that revenue generating facilities could be completed enabling the club to secure its future.

It's important that shared value is always at the heart of these partnerships so everyone wins, the community partner, the community itself and the Alliance Bank partner. So it's win, win, win all round.

This short video explains.
