Qantas in the community

See how we contribute to the arts, charities and sporting groups in the community.

Since Qantas was founded in outback Queensland in 1920, our iconic Australian airline has helped the communities in which we operate. From assisting Australians in times of natural disaster, to providing an international platform to showcase the best our country has to offer, we continue to make a significant social and economic contribution.

Championing the best of Australia

We believe in showcasing Australian success on the world stage and, in turn, inspiring the next generation of Australians to do great things. Our sports and arts sponsorships are focused on supporting elite Australian talent and helping our national teams excel in global competitions.

We're also proud to partner with leading Australian and international personalities to showcase Australia and Australians overseas.

Giving back

The Qantas Group has long-standing partnerships with organisations that have a positive impact on the community.

For Qantas, these partners include Make-a-Wish Australia, the National Australia Day Council, the Australian Olympic and Paralympic Committees, Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras, the Great Barrier Reef Foundation and UNICEF Australia.

We are also proud to champion reconciliation through our Elevate Reconciliation Action Plan, which is supported by a suite of reconciliation and Indigenous partners.

People giving

Qantas acknowledges the many passionate employees who support community organisations outside of Qantas through various programs including: an employee grant giving program, workplace giving and partnerships including FlyPink, QCCT and Pathfinders.

Sponsorship requests

Qantas is proud to support numerous regional and national organisations alongside various community-based and charity initiatives. We also receive a significant number of proposals for sponsorship. While we would like to be able to support many of these, this isn’t possible due to both budgetary and logistical reasons – and our overarching strategy. To assist in evaluating your proposal, please visit our sponsorship request portal to complete an application.

Due to the high volume of requests that we receive, allow three weeks for us to respond to your request.
