Take ACTION in Your Community
Alcoa recognizes that our retirees are very active in their communities, and is excited to expand both our ACTION and Bravo! volunteer programs to retirees in the United States.
Alcoans Coming Together in Our Neighborhoods (ACTION) encourages teams of employees and retirees to volunteer together on service projects in their communities. Alcoa Foundation donates $1,500 when four or more retirees volunteer 20 hours or more or $3,000 when eight or more retirees volunteer 40 hours or more. Each U.S. Retiree Club is given an ACTION allocation, and the President or designee coordinates all ACTION events and applies for the grant dollars.
Bravo! grants $250 to U.S. retirees who volunteer 50 hours or more with a nonprofit organization.
