The Tesco Ireland Charity Partner Programme gives our colleagues and customers the chance to pool their strengths and support a cause that is close to their hearts.
We started our Charity Partner Programme in 2001 and, to date, through the generosity and fundraising of Tesco colleagues, customers and their local communities, Tesco Ireland has raised over €20 million for good causes and charities in Ireland.
Our current Charity Partner is Children’s Health Foundation, which raises vital funds to support sick children and their families in CHI hospitals and urgent care centres at Crumlin, Temple Street, Tallaght and Connolly.
This partnership is an evolution of our partnership with Children's Health Foundation Temple Street, which was our Charity Partner from 2014 to early 2022. In the over seven years of the partnership, our colleagues helped to raise over €7 million to buy vital equipment for the hospital - making it one of the largest fundraising achievements in the private sector in Ireland.
Other charities we have supported through our Charity Partner programme include Aware, the Irish Cancer Society, the Alzheimer Society of Ireland, Down Syndrome Society, Childline, Irish Hospice, MS Ireland and the Make A Wish Foundation.
