Being part of our local communities is 
a huge part of who we are as a business

 ALDI’s Community Grants Programme provides each ALDI employee with the opportunity to nominate a charity or community group in their local community to receive a €500 donation from ALDI. The Community Grants Programme helps support charities and organisations that contribute vital work and services locally.

 Since the programme commenced in 2016, €535,000 has been donated to over 1,000 local charity branches and community groups across Ireland. Receiving charities and organisations range from rescue teams to animal sanctuaries, cancer support to mental health services.

The 2023 Community Grants Programme will open at the beginning of March and close at the end of April. No more nominations will be taken after this time.  The selected charities will be contacted later this year.
