QCoal awarded Corporate Philanthropist of the Year

The QCoal Foundation would like to congratulate its Founding Donor QCoal Group on being awarded the Queensland Community Foundation’s Corporate Philanthropist of the Year 2018.

The award, presented during Philanthropy Week, celebrates a business that has created a culture of philanthropy, and demonstrated an outstanding commitment to philanthropy. 

In accepting the award, QCoal Group Managing Director Christopher Wallin recognised the role of the QCoal Foundation and its partnerships across regional and remote Queensland.

Mr Wallin said he was pleased the award would highlight the important role of philanthropy all across the state, particularly in those regional and remote communities.

QCoal Foundation Director Paul Whimp recognised not only the QCoal Group’s role as Founding Donor of the QCoal Foundation, but the company’s ongoing support.

“The QCoal Group is a very active partner with our Foundation,” Mr Whimp said.  “This is exemplified through the current End of Financial Year Matching Campaign which will see all donations matched by the QCoal Group and through the continued interest from QCoal Group partners, suppliers and employees in our activities.”

“We are delighted to see the QCoal Group honoured with this award which highlights the organisation’s ongoing commitment to supporting resilient communities across regional and remote Queensland.”

The QCoal Foundation also acknowledges the significant contribution of the Queensland Community Foundation in celebrating the achievements of the philanthropic sector across Queensland.
