Rural firefighters, cancer patients, remote Australians and those in crisis are among the first recipients of grants from the TravelCard Giving Partnership, which has kicked off by donating $21,000 to be shared across eight nominated charities.

The Giving Partnership committee, which includes TravelCard CEO Peter Klemt and CFO Daniel Taback, meets three times a year to assess applications and distribute funds. Brokers who wish to nominate for the next round of grants can email or download the application form.

The inaugural recipients are Rural Fire Services, Sober in the Country, Blue Dot Army, Love Me Love You, Tour de Cure, Chaplainwatch, The Melbourne Therapy Association and Surf Lifesaving Queensland.

Travelcard, which launched in Australia last year, was awarded the 2019 Mansfield Award for Claims Excellence in the specialty claims category. The insurer is underwritten by Hollard.
