QBE Business Insurance is inviting UK brokers to nominate their favourite local charity for the chance to receive one of 40 cash awards.
The ‘Charity of Choice’ award, a new initiative by QBE’s charitable arm, the QBE Foundation, launches today and will see £100,000 go to broker-nominated charities across the UK. Qualifying charities will be randomly selected to receive one of 40 £2,500 donations.
The cash awards are open to all UK FCA-recognised brokers, who submit their nominations by 20 October. More information and the nomination form can be found at QBEeurope.com/charityofchoice.
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 our broking partners, QBE’s ‘Charity of Choice’ awards will help us make a difference to even more people across the UK. I encourage brokers to get involved by nominating a charity close to their hearts”.
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.
