At RACQ, we love seeing Queenslanders come together. That’s why we proudly offer sponsorships of up to $4,000 for events, programs and activities that
are meaningful to the Queensland community.
Since 2017, we’ve supported over 50 community organisations, groups, clubs, associations and charities across Queensland through our Local Giving and Community Sponsorships grassroots programs.
Applying for an RACQ Community Sponsorship is easy. If you feel you meet the sponsorship criteria and align with our corporate responsibility categories, we would love to hear from you.
There are two intakes per year:
RACQ's Community Sponsorships program gives twelve shortlisted community groups the opportunity to receive a grant up to $4,000.
RACQ members and the Queensland community were invited to select their three favoured initiatives, with the top-voted initiative receiving the People's Choice grant of $4,000.
Four shortlisted initiatives will also receive $4,000 as selected by RACQ's panel with the remaining seven initiatives receiving a $1,000 grant.
The grant recipient of the People’s Choice winner is The Foodbasket in Maryborough. They will receive a $4,000 grant towards their initiative.
The Foodbasket a not-for-profit grocery store providing free and low-cost groceries to people on low income. They also provide Emergency Relief to people in need, Breakfast Club to 13 schools in the region and assist in the provision of food to local community kitchens. The grant will support the running costs of the vehicle that distributed the donated food from local supermarkets. This initiative will benefit the local community by providing food to those who need it most.
Thank you to all that voted and stay tuned for the next application round open later this year.
