AIB Group has launched the AIB Community €1 Million Fund to support over 30 charitable organisations in communities across Ireland.

The bank is asking its customers and the wider public in Munster to nominate registered charities that connect with causes that matter most to them and their communities. 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.

The fund will be distributed following an online nomination process, one for customers and one for employees, and will be split across five regions in Ireland – Greater Dublin, the Rest of Leinster, Munster, Connaught and Ulster.

Nominations are now open since 12th May and will close on 22nd June, 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. The bank will separately launch a process for AIB staff wishing to nominate charities in their communities.

Once nominations are confirmed, the top six nominees for each of the five regions will be asked to present to an AIB regional panel. Four charities in each region will each receive €28,000, while two will each receive €4,000, with the selected charities announced in September.
