40 winners of QBE ‘Charity of Choice’ initiative announced


QBE has announced the winners of its first ever ‘Charity of Choice’ award which saw 40 charities nominated by UK brokers each receive a £2,500 donation.

The ‘Charity of Choice’ award, a new initiative by QBE’s charitable arm, the QBE Foundation, saw a total of £100,000 go to broker-nominated charities across the UK. Qualifying charities were randomly selected to receive a donation.

Grant Clemence, Chair of the QBE Foundation in Europe, said: “QBE has a proud history of supporting good causes that benefit the communities in which we live and work. With the help of brokers across the UK regions, QBE’s ‘Charity of Choice’ awards are helping make a difference to people across the UK. We’re absolutely delighted with the response from brokers for a wide range of great causes.”

The QBE Foundation has donated over £8m to charities since its launch in 2011, through a combination of initiatives such as matching employee fundraising efforts and payroll giving donations to providing grants to charities and encouraging employee volunteering.

The cash awards were open to all UK FCA-recognised brokers, who submitted their nominations by 20th October 2019.
