The QBE Foundation, the charitable arm of global insurer QBE, has announced its charity partners for 2017.
The insurer will renew partnerships with Brainwave, Camp Quality, The Big Issue and The Kids’ Cancer Project and join with two new charities, Assistance Dogs Australia and Foodbank, for the first time.
Charity partners are provided with a one-off donation of between $50,000 and $100,000 and a 12-month commitment of support from the QBE Foundation. QBE employees are offered volunteer opportunities with the selected charities throughout the year.

“Through appointing a select group for an annual partnership, it gives us the structure to build a relationship and really get to know the charities and their goals,” Sally Kincaid, QBE Foundation chairperson said.
“It also allows our people to get involved, whether that be through volunteering, attending events, or sharing in the success stories when we work together to achieve great outcomes.”
For the first time, the Foundation has awarded The Kids’ Cancer Project with a multi-year partnership, signing for three years. The insurer will support an anti-cancer drug trial, alongside other initiatives.
