Community Engagement

CGU has a strong tradition of giving back to the communities in which we serve, live and work.

CGU has a strong tradition of giving back to the communities in which we serve, live and work. We believe we have important responsibilities to enable our communities and people to be safer, stronger and more confident. 

We support a broad range of local events and community initiatives, and our parent company’s Foundation, the IAG Foundation gives additional focus to our community engagement efforts. 

Our community efforts focus on areas and organisations that help communities prepare for and recover from natural disasters.

The IAG Foundation

The IAG Foundation provides a focus for CGU’s community activities.  

The Foundation supports our people to engage with the charitable organisations and activities they are passionate about.  This includes activities like workplace giving, fundraising and volunteering. Our ‘Local Chapter’ initiative encourages our people to support a charitable organisation deal with a specific social issue in their local area. The Foundation's budget is committed to these activities and it does not run a general grants program.

The Foundation has existing charity partners to which it directs support, and with which it aims to have long-term partnerships.

CGU is committed to ensuring the IAG Foundation makes a positive and lasting difference.
