Community Involvement

Our commitment to putting people first doesn’t stop with our staff and Members. We’re also committed to supporting the communities in which we live. Our commitment to give back to the communities that support us is threaded into the fabric of our organisation and we demonstrate this in a range of different ways including:

Queensland Country Good for Good Community Grants

  • Supporting community projects that have a positive overall impact on our communities. This program has a number of focus areas and encourages applications for projects that enable people to participate, experience, grow, learn, connect, make a difference and be safe.

Major community sponsorships

  • We have a strong commitment to sponsoring the local teams and events that matter to our Members and their communities. In line with the passion that many Queenslanders hold for rugby league, we are proud to be the Official Banking Partner of the North Queensland Cowboys rugby league team. We are also the Official Health Fund Partner of the Townsville Fire and the Official Banking and Health Fund Partner of the Mackay Cutters, and other major events.

Community Partnership Program

  • Our Community Partnership Fundraising Program rewards participating community groups when their supporters choose to use Queensland Country for their Banking or Health Insurance needs.

Community Volunteer Program

  • Like the organisation, our staff are committed to their local communities and enjoy giving their time to assist wherever possible. To help them achieve this goal, we provide two days per year paid community leave to staff.

Our Charity partner

Workplace Giving Program

  • We currently have 85% of our workforce donating $1 a fortnight to four charities chosen by our staff. This may not seem like much, but it really does amount to an incredible donation – talk about teamwork!

In times of need

  • When disasters strike our communities, we are quick to react and offer support to help them back on their feet. We’re able to offer our Members support in a number of ways that help ease the financial pressures that follow major disasters.
