Suncorp's Community Investment Strategy focuses on making a positive impact on the most material social issues facing Suncorp, specifically financial resilience, social resilience and natural hazard resilience.
We work in partnership with a range of community organisations and encourage our employees to be active in the community through our employee giving program, Brighter Futures.
In FY21, Suncorp invested $9 million in our communities. This includes $5.1 million in strategic partnerships that centre on increasing financial, natural hazard and social resilience. Suncorp also provided $1.2 million to various charities and community groups through our employee giving program, Brighter Futures.
Suncorp's employee giving program, Brighter Futures, inspires and enables our employees to make a difference on the issues they care about. Each year Suncorp commits $1 million to match our employees’ donations, fundraising, crowdfunding and volunteering efforts. This year Suncorp matched $1 million of the money and time our employees have personally raised and given.
In FY20, Suncorp employees selected 14 local charities to partner with across Australia and New Zealand to address issues they care most about in the communities where they live and work. These charities provide support for those experiencing mental health issues, homelessness, family violence, cancer, childhood illness, and drought.
#Measuring social impact
To support our Community Investment Strategy, in FY21 Suncorp piloted a framework with four of our community partners to understand the social impact of our community investment. In FY22, we will begin to implement our framework for measuring social impact across our strategic community partnerships.
