RACQ Foundation helps Queensland community groups impacted by natural disasters

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 affected by natural disasters, such as storm, flood, fire and drought. The Foundation also run Community Assistance Projects to lend a much-needed helping hand to communities doing it tough.

In 2019, RACQ Foundation approved $1,074,482 in funding for community groups. Since its inception in 2011, RACQ Foundation has distributed more than $8.5 million to 205 community groups and clubs.

So, thanks to the support of our members, together we can do more for our Queensland community.
