Our partners in the community




After over 16 years of supporting GOAL through fundraising events, in 2021, we became official lead sponsor of the humanitarian agency’s flagship event, the GOAL Mile. The growth of the event will empower GOAL to support communities affected by climate change across the world. We support GOAL’s valuable work in Ukraine and donations to the GOAL Ukraine Emergency Appeal. AIB has donated €250,000 to support GOAL’s Ukraine Emergency Appeal, as part of an overall €500,000 commitment to support those in need.
We stand with GOAL to support the communities most affected by the earthquake in Turkey and Syria. GOAL have been supporting these regions for over 10 years. Your donations go towards restarting humanitarian aid programmes that deliver shelter, access to food, clean water, health and social support. You can donate directly to GOAL here.



AIB and FoodCloud have a shared vision of building more sustainable communities to support the just transition to a low carbon economy, and an Ireland where no good food goes to waste. Since the start of our partnership, AIB has enabled FoodCloud to redistribute over 28 million meals.
AIB employees have volunteered with FoodCloud, either in the Cork, Galway or Dublin Hubs, gleaning on farms, or through skilled volunteering, donating over 11,103  volunteering hours since 2018. Our partnership has meant that 12,000 tonnes of food was redistributed, with over 38,409 tonnes of CO2 eq. avoided.


Junior Achievement Ireland

Partnering with Junior Achievement Ireland is aligned with AIB’s wider sustainability strategy to build a society that is socially and economically inclusive through investing and raising awareness in access, education and innovation for our customers, colleagues and our communities. 
In 2021, we introduced the AIB 'It's My Business' programme in 55 primary schools across Ireland where 1,998 nine to eleven year old students were educated on entrepreneurship. As part of our wider relationship, we continue to support JAI to reach 408 schools and over 30,000 students in Ireland.



Established in 2014, AsIAm works to create a society in which every autistic person is empowered to reach their own personal potential and fully participate in society. By helping to develop the capacity of the autism community and addresses the societal barriers to inclusion. The ambition is to make Ireland the world’s most autism-friendly country. Today, AsIAm is Ireland’s most influential autism charity with a team of 21 staff, half of whom are themselves autistic.
In December 2022 we announced our partnership with AsIAm. Throughout our partnership, we will be supporting AsIAm to roll out more support services to autistic people in Ireland while AsIAm will work with AIB to roll out training and supports. AIB is committed to creating an inclusive and diverse organisation that supports its customers and creates an environment in which all employees can develop and thrive.
