Community Capacity and Resilience
 
Economic success depends on a region’s ability to attract and retain a talented workforce.  By investing in the quality of place – including community infrastructure, arts and culture, as well as a strong non-profit sector – we help build capacity of communities to ensure resilience of communities and give them a competitive edge in the global economy.
 
Give Where You Live Geelong
 
Alcoa has partnered with Give Where You Live, Geelong's premier charitable organisation, since our operations commenced in 1963.
 
Alcoa Point Henry is a Premier Supporter of Give Where You Live and has a broad partnership with the organisation.
 
Each year, Give Where You Live raises money for over 70 vital health and human care agencies within the region. Tens of thousands of people within the Geelong region benefit from a Give Where You Live funded organisation each year, including children, youth, the elderly, families, people with disabilities and people in crisis.
 
Alcoa makes an annual corporate donation to Give Where You Live and Alcoa employees personally support the Give Where You Live Workplace Giving Program through making personal donations from their salary.  In addition to this each year an Alcoa representative participates in the Loaned Executive Program.
