Fund­ing pro­gram open

Pinjarra Murray Times - - OPINION -

ALCOA’s Pin­jarra alu­mina re­fin­ery is call­ing for fund­ing ap­pli­ca­tions for the next round of its Com­mu­nity Part­ner­ship pro­gram.

Ap­pli­ca­tions are open to not-for-profit or­gan­i­sa­tions for projects and events in the Shire of Mur­ray and City of Man­durah. Re­fin­ery man­ager Julio Costa said in­vest­ing in the com­mu­nity was a pri­or­ity.

“Each year we spon­sor a wide range of com­mu­nity part­ner­ships across Mur­ray and Man­durah, fund­ing lo­cal events and projects run by not­for-profit or­gan­i­sa­tions,” he said.

“Over the past two years Pin­jarra re­fin­ery has in­vested more than $850,000 into the com­mu­nity through its part­ner­ship pro­gram.”

Mr Costa said ap­pli­ca­tions were strongly en­cour­aged from lo­cal not-for-profit or­gan­i­sa­tions that pro­moted en­vi­ron­men­tal sus­tain­abil­ity, com­mu­nity health and safety, to­mor­row’s work­force and lead­ers and com­mu­nity ca­pac­ity and re­silience.

Ap­pli­ca­tions close on Fri­day, Novem­ber 24.

For an ap­pli­ca­tion form, call Stephanie Gard­ner on 9531 6240 or email PINCom­mu­ni­tyRe­la­tions@alcoa.com.au.
