Beginning in 2017, American Logistics Aid Network has given out annual awards to for-profit companies recognizing their achievements in humanitarian aid. The Outstanding Contribution to Disaster Relief Award is recognition-based only and does not have any prize money associated with it. The degree of the awards’ effectiveness has been a subject much debated in scholarship. This research attempts to answer how the American Logistics Aid Network’s Outstanding Contribution to Disaster Relief Award affects the recipients financially. In particular, the research was designed to look at how the American Logistics Aid Network’s Outstanding Contribution to Disaster Relief Award affected the profit, earnings per share, and shareholders equity of its recipients. The results of this research suggest that companies that participate in humanitarian aid and then receive recognition for it see an improvement in their financials.
