The 2024 AIB Community €1 Million Fund is now closed.


The 2024 charities are announced in September 2024.

AIB Group has launched its latest €1 Million Fund to support charitable organisations in communities across the UK.

The fund started in 2022 and to date has supported 150 charities across Northern Ireland Great Britain and Ireland, with 39 of these charities specifically receiving support in Northern Ireland and Great Britain.

We are asking customers, employees and the wider public in Northern Ireland to nominate registered charities that connect with causes that matter most to them.

In the UK the fund will be distributed following an online nomination process, one for customers and one for staff. The UK fund will be split across Northern Ireland and Great Britain. Entries are open from the 8th May and will close 12th June

In 2023, one of the charities awarded funding from your nominations was Sólás Autism and Additional needs Charity. The Charity provides interactive practical support for children and young adults with additional needs and their families and their families through educational social programmes, networking and collaboration

Speaking about the impact the fund has had on its organisation, Joan Henderson, Managing Director at Sólás said:

“We are so grateful to AIB and to all those who nominated Sólás to receive £15,000 in funding support through the 2023 nominations process. The fund has allowed us to purchase a sensory room and transform a previously disused space into an invaluable resource for young people with Autism and Additional Needs in Northern Ireland.

“Our mission is to deliver interactive, practical support for young people aged 2-18+ and to support their families through the services we provide. The AIB funding has expedited a much-needed resource for our organisation, providing a safe and calming space on-premises. I’d highly recommend the process to other charities and organisations as it was very straightforward and stress-free.”
