Meet Suncorp’s 2020 Brighter Futures Local Charity Partners

Since its relaunch in 2018, Brighter Futures has enabled our people to make a difference and have an input in the way Suncorp supports local communities, committing $1 million annually to match Suncorp people’s donations, fundraising, crowdfunding and volunteering. 

‘We’re excited to announce our 2020 Brighter Futures Local Charity Partners, and to highlight the important work these charities do in and for their local communities," Sara Parrott, Head of Corporate Responsibility said of the announcement. 

"Brighter Futures is 100% driven by our employees. Our partners work hard on the issues our people care about most and we’re looking forward to supporting these organisations through payroll giving, fundraising and volunteering over the coming two years."

This year, fourteen not-for-profit charities right across Australia and New Zealand, as nominated and selected by over 2,000 Suncorp employees, will receive much-needed support over the next two years through the Brighter Future programs. This includes fundraising events, payroll giving and local volunteering.
