ACTION (Alcoans Coming Together in Our Neighborhoods) encourages employees to volunteer together. In 2011, more than 11,000 employees completed 792 ACTION events, exceeding 50,000 hours of service, the highest on record since the program’s inception. Alcoa Foundation matches the time donated with USD$1,500 when four employees volunteer and USD$3,000 when eight employees volunteer. Alcoa Foundation granted more than USD$1.7 million in ACTION grants to nonprofits in 2011.
“ACTION is a great initiative to gather employees and community members while improving the lives of others. Every year in Székesfehérvár the Mayor joins us for a big event, creating more visibility for the charities we support.”
– Erika Sas, Communications Manager
