QBE and the Sydney Swans kicking goals for charity

The Sydney Swans Foundation and the QBE Foundation are set to score this weekend thanks to a pledge from QBE to donate $1,000 for every Sydney Swans goal kicked against the Gold Coast Suns this Saturday at the SCG.

The ‘QBE Goals for Good’ initiative will see raised funds split evenly between the Sydney Swans Foundation and the QBE Foundation, the respective charitable arms of the football club and global insurer, to support the charitable efforts and partnerships of both organisations.

QBE Foundation Chair Bettina Pidcock said the QBE ‘Goals for Good’ initiative was made possible through QBE and the Sydney Swans’ shared passion for supporting important community causes.

“The Sydney Swans have long supported us in our efforts to make a difference to the communities we operate within, helping us bring to life our mission to support people in the community to overcome disadvantage, strengthen their abilities, and live more independently, successfully and productively,” she said.

“This weekend’s ‘Goals for Good’ initiative raises funds that will go toward truly worthwhile causes and is a fantastic example of the way we work so proudly with the Swans to achieve this objective.”

Sydney Swans CEO and Managing Director Andrew Ireland said ‘Goals for Good’ is a great initiative.

“QBE is a long-standing and much-valued part of our Sydney Swans family and this is just one example of how they work with us to support the community,” Ireland said.

“We’re looking forward to an exciting Saturday afternoon of football at the SCG and hope the team can finish with a big bag of goals knowing that each one contributes to QBE’s ‘Goals for Good’ pledge.”
