Community Investment

At Suncorp, we respect our people and communities and invest in their resilience and wellbeing.

Performance Highlights

to support our people in the community


hours volunteered by our people

In 2017–18 Suncorp invested $10.1 million into our communities, which included $8.4 million in cash contributions and $968,000 in management costs to support our community programs. This included the paid volunteer leave for 2,094 of our people to the value of $701,000. Suncorp also reshaped its Community Investment Strategy to focus on making a positive impact on the most material social issues facing Suncorp, specifically financial resilience, social resilience and natural hazard resilience. Over time we aim to transition more of Suncorp’s community investment to support these areas.

Employee Giving

Suncorp redesigned its employee giving program, Brighter Futures, to make it easier for our employees to make a difference on the issues they care about. 

Sixteen local charity partnerships have been established across Australia and New Zealand, addressing key issues including mental health, domestic violence and cancer. Guided by more than 1,000 employee survey responses, the charity partners were selected by employee committees representing our people across each of our regions.

In January 2018 Suncorp committed $1 million annually to match our employees’ donations, fundraising, crowdfunding and volunteering efforts. This year our employees have personally given money and time to the value of $753,000, of which Suncorp matched $393,000.

The new Brighter Futures was launched to employees in April 2018 through a series of events that gave our employees the opportunity to meet their local charity partners.
