Suncorp has matched more than $1 million raised by its employees for charity, bringing the total donated to more than $2 million.

Of the total, $226,000 went to charities supporting the bushfire relief effort.

Suncorp’s Brighter Futures employee giving program, in which employees select local charities to partner with, donated to more than 350 Australian and New Zealand organisations.

Some brave WA Suncorp employees abseiled down the 220-metre façade of Perth’s Central Park building, raising more than $37,000 for the Ronald McDonald Foundation.

Suncorp says almost $600,000 of the donations were made via staff salaries, with the rest raised via fundraising and personal volunteering.

“The support shown through payroll giving, fundraising and volunteering is inspirational and highlights the genuine drive to support those less fortunate within our communities,” Suncorp Market Leader Stores Jordan Walsh said.

Suncorp will partner for the next two years with 14 charities spanning mental health, family violence, children and young people, and drought.
