Enabling communities to thrive

The third part of our purpose is to ‘enable our communities to thrive’. Our communities are those in which we live and work, and also include other groups both local and global, such as our partners, shareholders, regulators and government. We support the wider community through our charity and community initiatives, our contribution to arts and culture and by playing an active role in society.

  • We support our colleagues in fundraising and volunteering for good causes through our Give Together community and charity investment initiative.
  • We partner with four flagship charities working with them to deliver lasting benefits to society.
  • We provide practical support for charities and communities through reduced current account fees and the provision of training and professional development.
  • We support arts and culture through our Cultural and Heritage Centre in College Green and our sponsorship of the award-winning Bank of Ireland Junk Kouture.
  • We support more than 5,200 large and small sports clubs through our sponsorships.
  • We play an active role in society through our direct economic impact, providing advice and participating fully in our community.
