Drinks company gave €1 million in Ireland Howard Lake | 3 January 2013 | News AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Diageo Ireland donated over €1 million to charity in Ireland last year. The drinks company says the money went to charities, community groups and social entrepreneurs. The cornerstone and biggest beneficiary of Diageo’s community investment approach is the Arthur Guinness Fund. In 2009 the 250th anniversary of the signing of the St. James’s Gate lease was marked by the creation of the Fund which supports social entrepreneurs throughout Ireland. Since that time €1.65 million has been invested in the Fund.

The maximum funding available for any one project is £50,000. Payments are made normally over a maximum period of three years. www.diageo.com 15 total views, 2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Tagged with: corporate Ireland Research / statistics About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.
