We aim to add value and benefit to all the local communities in which we operate. We achieve this through both corporate giving programmes and community sponsorship. Hundreds of individuals, groups and organisations benefit from various types of support from the Group.
Our major initiative is the Better Ireland programme which provides funding to groups working with disadvantaged children. The AIB Better Ireland Programme has given €17.85 million to groups working with vulnerable children in Ireland since 2001. During 2010, the AIB Better Ireland programme gave EUR1.85 million to over 500 deserving children's projects all over Ireland.
We are focused on playing a role in both the economic and social development of the communities in which we operate. Our sponsorship programmes reflect this and in Ireland our sponsorships centre on ‘grassroots’ sports sponsorship especially through the GAA Club Championships. We also support the Arts through the AIB Art Prize which is an award which provides an opportunity for emerging artists by supporting a first solo exhibition for the winner.Back to top
