QBE in the Community

The QBE Foundation was established in 2011 to reflect our company's involvement, commitment and investment in the communities where we do business, and where our employees live and work.

Our company allows paid time off for employees to be involved in volunteer activities and offers payroll deduction and matching donations for foundation-supported organizations.

The foundation funds charities – nominated by our employees – dedicated to helping people overcome disadvantages, strengthen their abilities and live more independently, successfully and productively.
