Tesco Community Fund - supporting communities around Ireland
The Tesco Community Fund was launched in July 2014, to support local good causes in the communities around each of our 164 stores throughout Ireland. Every 12 weeks, each Tesco store donates up to €2,000 between three local good causes in its community.
If you'd like to nominate a local cause to receive a donation from the Community Fund, you can do so here.
Customers decide how their local Tesco Community Fund is shared by voting for their preferred cause in store by placing the blue token they receive at the checkout in the donation box of the local good cause they would most like to support.
Then, at the end of the 12 weeks, the number of tokens is counted and up to €2,000 is distributed proportionally between three local good causes. The more tokens a local good cause gets the larger share of the donation they receive.
Since 2014, thanks to your help, we have supported over 21,000 community projects nationwide - including schools, animal shelters, sports groups, elderly care centres, health organisations and much more - with over €6 million in donations.
