The QBE Foundation, the charitable arm of Australia’s largest global insurer, has donated $10,000 to the GO Foundation in support of their work championing Indigenous education and mission to expand their scholarship program.

GO founders and Swans greats Adam Goodes and Michael O’Loughlin were presented with the donation at the SCG on Friday 26 May following the Swans Marn Grook match which formed part of the Sir Douglas Nicholls Indigenous round.

QBE Foundation Chairperson Sally Kincaid said the donation was part of QBE’s mission to make a real difference to the communities it operates within and was another example of the strong relationship QBE maintains with GO and the Swans community.

“We strive to be the insurer that builds the strongest relationships with customers of all backgrounds and cultures and, as one of Australia’s largest insurers of Indigenous communities, we’ve long been committed supporting and celebrating Indigenous Australians”, Kincaid said.

“The GO Foundation does wonderful work providing better futures for young Indigenous Australians and we are proud to support such a worthwhile cause.”

“Our long-time relationship with Adam Goodes and Michael O’Loughlin at GO and of course the broader Swans club, also make the GO Foundation a fitting choice for the grant.”

Co-Founder and Non-Executive Director of GO Michael O’Loughlin said the grant would directly fund the expansion of their scholarship program to include state schools.

“The QBE Foundation has been a strong supporter of the GO Foundation since the beginning. We are thrilled to be the recipient of their continued strong support. Support from organisations like QBE help the GO Foundation provide more opportunities to Indigenous youth and through education give them a brighter future.”

This donation will be used to extend the GO Foundation scholarship program for the first time into public schools.
