Support for not-for-profit and charitable organisations
Our staff and organisation provide both monetary and other support to a wide range of charitable and not-for-profit organisations based in Cork and beyond. In the last 18 months alone, we have supported over 30 organisations through fundraising and donations.
Our membership network includes over 40 charities and we are conscious of the role that we can play to support these organisations and raise awareness of their causes. To that end we offer a discounted rate to Charities whilst also offering them access to the full range of our services.
“Grand Job” was launched in May 2015 and was Cope Foundation’s first advocacy campaign
promoting the equal participation of people with disabilities in the workforce. As part of
Cork Chamber’s continued efforts to drive CSR participation we immediately saw the opportunity to bring this initiative to the business community.
Cork Chamber was approached by community organisation ‘The Peoples Republic of Cork’ to
promote their clean up our city initiative. A team of 12 from Cork Chamber partook in the removal of graffiti from Patrick Street in Cork City.
Our staff are supported to partake in volunteering initiatives, in the community and with charities as they offer us the opportunity to lead by example for our business network while also supporting the wider community. We have supported various initiatives either financially and/or by giving staff time to work on these projects.
Initiatives that we have supported in the last 18 months include iWish, Purple Flag, Long Table Dinner, Heel Appeal, Cork Simon Christmas Jumper Day, Pull Up Your Socks, Focus Ireland Sleep Out, Charity Hole @ Golf Classic, Charity Draw @ Annual Christmas Lunch, Grant Thornton Run, Job Shadow, Supported multiple charity flag days, 160 year of Cork Opera House, and Everyman 120 Years.
