The Tesco Community Fund was launched in July 2014, to support local good causes in the communities around each of our 151 stores throughout Ireland.
If you'd like to nominate a local cause to receive a donation from the Community Fund, you can do so here.
Every eight weeks, each Tesco store donates up to €1,000 between three local good causes in its community.
Since 2014, thanks to your help, we have supported over 20,000 community projects nationwide - including schools, animal shelters, sports groups, elderly care centres, health organisations and much more - with €5 million in donations.
In normal times, 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, every eight weeks, the number of tokens is counted and up to €1,000 is distributed proportionally between three local good causes. The more tokens a local good cause gets the larger share of the donation they receive.
Currently, these traditional operations of our Community Fund are paused due to Covid-19, but we are still working hard to support our communities by supporting charities nationally and locally with a series of donations to help those most in need, through the Tesco Community Fund.
