- Over 30 charitable organisations in communities across Ireland & UK set to benefit
- AIB calls on customers and public to nominate charities that matter to them
AIB Group has launched the AIB Community €1 Million Fund to support over 30 charitable organisations in communities across the UK and Ireland.
AIB will allocate €700,000 to charities chosen by its customers and the public while €300,000 will go to charities chosen by the bank’s employees. A proportion of the total fund will be distributed in the UK following an online nomination process, one for customers/public and one for employees.
The bank is asking its customers and the wider public to nominate registered charities that connect with causes that matter most to them and their communities.
Nominations in the UK are open from 23 June 2022 and will close on 14 July 2022. The nomination form and full details on the AIB Community €1 Million Fund are available on the bank’s website.* Customers and the public are required to submit the registration number of the charity they are nominating in order to complete the form.
Michelle Emerson, Chair of AIB’s UK Charity Forum said: “I am delighted to launch the UK nomination process for the AIB Community Fund which will support local charities right here in Northern Ireland and in Great Britain. We are inviting our customers and the public to nominate the charities that are close to their hearts and that they would like to see supported by the fund. Our hope is that this funding will help make a real difference to those who are working tirelessly for the benefit of their local communities and the most vulnerable in society.’’
The AIB Community €1 Million Fund follows other charitable initiatives already undertaken by AIB in the UK including the bank’s association with Cancer Research UK.
