AWA works with shared value partners to deliver on their vision to improve our community.

We help these organisations fulfil a community need while remaining financially sustainable. As a social enterprise, we believe there is no challenge we cannot tackle through this model.

AWA has achieved the following in shared value initiatives…

Geelong United Basketball

Due to the popularity and growth of domestic and representative basketball in the Geelong region, Basketball Geelong (now Geelong United Basketball) were in desperate need for additional courts. To secure basketball’s future in the area, AWA provided $1.65 million of funding support for their fit-out of 6 new courts at the Crows road complex.

The project has allowed Geelong United Basketball to meet demand and facilitate developmental pathways for players.

East Belmont Cricket Club

AWA supported East Belmont Cricket Club to build two major infrastructure projects (new change room and practice facility upgrades) at their home ground at Winter Reserve.

With co-contributions from the Federal Government, the State Government, the City of Greater Geelong and the Belmont Lions Sports Club (BLSC) the $1.15 million project will deliver new change room facilities which are shared by EBCC and BLSC.

Ocean Grove Surf Life Saving Club

Ocean Grove Surf Life Saving Club has partnered with AWA who have provided funding support of $600k to furnish and equip their new first aid, training, administration and hospitality areas in the new clubhouse facility.

To receive government grants, OGSLSC needed to fit-out the new facility. The stunning main beach location will now suit lifesaving and surf sporting needs while providing Ocean Grove with a beautiful events location.

Alma Doepel

From 1988-1999, Alma Doepel provided sail and ship-handling training for about 2,500 young people. Sail & Adventure Limited, owners of Alma Doepel, have embarked on an ambitious plan to refit the ship so that she can again provide a world-class youth leadership and education program.

They have been working extremely hard to ensure Alma Doepel is restored to her former glory and returned to the water from her dry dock.

Give Where You Live Foundation

To assist them with the purchase of their new head office, AWA has provided support to Give Where You Live Foundation, allowing them to continue their community work better. The move will save them on costs and provide a facility which better supports their needs. As a philanthropic partner also of AWA, we believe our help towards their new building further equips them to tackle social disadvantage in the Geelong and G21 region.
