The AIB €1 Million Community Fund opens in 2023
The AIB Community €1 Million Fund was first launched in 2022 and supported 72 charities across six regions in Ireland, NI and the UK. This year we will continue to support communities through the fund which will support a further 72 charitable organisations in 2023. The AIB Community €1 Million Fund enables customers, the public and our employees to support the local charities that mean most to them, within their region.
Last year, Dogs for the Disabled was supported by the Fund. Watch here to see how the funding helped this charity in 2022.
