On May 10, the AIB Community €1 Million Fund opened for 2023, giving anyone in Ireland a chance to nominate their local charities to receive additional financial support. The nomination window is open for five weeks, and anyone can nominate a charity that means the most to them!
The fund aims to support various community groups and help nonprofit organisations keep up their good and much-needed work. The fund is currently supporting 72 charities across six regions in Ireland, Northern Ireland and the UK and is looking to support a further 72 organisations this year.
The organisations that receive the highest number of nominations will be shortlisted and invited to present to a judging panel that will consist of several AIB representatives and independent judges.
If you intend to nominate Shine for consideration, you can simply submit your nomination on the AIB Community €1 Million Fund website (by clicking on this link: https://aib.ie/community). All you have to do is click on ‘nominate here’, enter Shine: Supporting People Affected by Mental Ill Health and our charity registration number (20011512) and give a short description of why you think we deserve support.
We at Shine greatly appreciate any and all nominations because, as a charity, every little bit of funding we receive makes it possible for us to continue to provide vital support to anyone living with mental health challenges, along with family members and supporters. By doing so, you’ll also be helping us achieve our vision of a more compassionate Ireland where those affected by mental illness and stigma are supported and included in all aspects of society.
