When disaster strikes, RACQ Foundation helps rebuild communities

Initially set up to support community groups impacted by natural disasters, the RACQ Foundation is now extending funding to support those impacted by COVID-19.

Community groups who have been impacted by COVID-19, assisting with the recovery from COVID-19 or natural disasters including drought can now apply for funding.

RACQ is owned by members, which means we can do more for our Queensland community, helping however we can in tough times.

RACQ Foundation gives back with financial assistance for community organisations and through community assistance projects to lend a much needed helping hand to communities doing it tough.

How we’ve helped

When disaster strikes, RACQ Foundation helps rebuild communities. It's because RACQ is member-owned, that we can do more for Queensland community organisations.

With over $400,000 in funding approved for community groups across the state, find out what we’ve achieved this year. Check out past RACQ Foundation Annual Reviews to see all the ways we’ve supported community groups in Queensland.

The RACQ Foundation will consider all proposals that meet the criteria and guidelines. All successful and unsuccessful applicants will be advised in writing as soon as practicable.
