When disaster strikes, RACQ Foundation is there to help

Since 2011, the Foundation has distributed more than $10.9 million to assist more than 400 Queensland community groups affected by natural disaster and drought. In 2021, RACQ Foundation celebrated 10 years of helping Queensland communities.

Through its Community Grants program, RACQ Foundation gives community groups, charities and sporting clubs the opportunity to rebuild after cyclones, severe storms, bushfires and drought.

Applying to the RACQ Foundation Community Grants program is easy, and there are two application rounds per year.

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