APA’s Community Investment Program connects our business and our people to the communities in which we work and live by supporting initiatives to improve the future prospects for vulnerable Australians, particularly Indigenous Australians.

At its core are our partnerships with these organisations:

  • Fred Hollows Foundation: in Australia, working to improve the health and wellbeing of Indigenous communities in remote locations.
  • Clontarf Foundation: working to improve the education, self-esteem and employment prospects of young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander men.
  • Stars Foundation: working to improve gender equity for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander girls through intensive support programs in high schools.

APA’s Community Investment Program also supports a number of causes close to the hearts of APA people through our annual employee community event calendar, by capped matching of funds raised by APA employees. Supported events/organisations are:

  • Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea: helping to fund Cancer Council’s vital research, prevention and support service programs.
  • Smith Family: helping disadvantaged Australian children to get the most out of their education, so they can create better futures for themselves.
  • Beyond Blue: helping everyone in Australia achieve their best possible mental health, whatever their age and wherever they live.
