When disaster strikes, RACQ Foundation is there to help.

Since 2011 RACQ Foundation has given over $9.24 million to assist community organisations throughout Queensland to get back on their feet after natural disasters.

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

Applying to the Community Grant Program is easy with three application rounds per year.

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