Fred Hollows Wins Charity of the Year
Thursday, 4th July 2013 at 10:06 am

The Fred Hollows Foundation has been awarded Charity of the Year at the Australian Business and Charity Awards.

As well, the Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet, MADLAH, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF), UCAN Cafes, and FSHD Global Research Foundation were recognised as Outstanding Charities of the Year.

Now in its eighth year this is the first time the Australian Business Awards have introduced a charity section into the competition.

The Awards highlight the achievements of leading corporate, government and non-government organisations across key industry segments, including financial, manufacturing, professional services, construction, energy, transport, food services, healthcare, public service, education, retail and telecommunications.

Awards Program Director Tara Johnston said the work of Not for Profit organisations and their efforts in engaging the community deserved to be recognised with their own category.

“The work carried out by non-profit organisations is unique. It is vital in helping the disadvantaged and underprivileged and engaging the entire community and it is for this reason that charitable organisations are now being recognised through a national program,” she said.

The entries were assessed using key criteria covering planning, research and development, execution and implementation, impact and outcomes and performance management.

Fred Hollows Foundation CEO Brian Doolan said the organisation, like any other business, held cost effectiveness, value for money and transparency in the highest regard.

“For The Fred Hollows Foundation, good business means our impact results in sight for the millions of people who suffer from avoidable blindness around the globe,” he said.

“It’s been a bit over 20 years since we lost Fred, but his vision for a world without avoidable blindness is still very much alive today. I’d like to share this nod of recognition with every single Australian who has supported us over the years.”
