ALPA wins National Charity Award
ALPA has been recognised as a Winner for Outstanding Achievement in The Australian Charity Awards 2016 for our work in employing Indigenous staff, creating enterprise and jobs, and our numerous benevolent programs.
Now in its fourth year, The Australian Charity Awards program recognises the dedication and achievements of non-profit organisations, charitable funds and charitable institutions. As a partner program of The Australian Business Awards, the Awards highlight organisations that have achieved outstanding results through initiatives that have significantly benefited charitable causes.
Initiatives are evaluated in accordance with the assessment framework and are scored across the key areas of Planning, Research and Development; Execution and/or Implementation; Impact and/or Outcomes and Performance Management.
In the last financial year, ALPA contributed over $16 Million to our 5 Arnhem Land member communities through direct wages, benevolent programs and capital infrastructure investments. This was up $7 Million on the previous year and represents an indication of how ALPA's economic success is supporting real social outcomes for our members. ALPA currently employs 1187 people of whom 1010 are indigenous (85%).
