QBE Foundation announces winners of $440,000 in local grants

The QBE Foundation is pleased to announce the recipients of its 2023 annual local grants program, providing a total of $440,000 to 11 charity and community organisations.

Each winner will receive $40,000 to further support their work in addressing inclusion and climate resilience in Australia.

The program, which received over 200 applications, also included an Employee Choice category, allowing QBE employees to apply for a local grant on behalf of a charity they work with or feel passionately about.
