The Vodafone Ireland Foundation, set up in 2003, runs a wide range of community initiatives and programmes, with the mission of “connecting for good” and delivering inclusive projects through our technology. We have donated over €10 million over the last 18 years to a variety of charities across Ireland.
It is one of 27 Vodafone Foundations around the world, dedicated to supporting groups across all segments of society seeking to make a real difference in our community. We make this happen by funding and working with a number of charities.
Using our world-class technology, we partner with organisations towards connecting for good. Over the last 5 years we have worked with ISPCC Childline to build their digital platform, committed to covering all call costs for a decade, and continue to focus on cybersafety. In addition, we have worked with Women’s Aid on a number of projects focused on high risk victims, and launched our Bright Sky Ireland app in 2019.
The Foundation will broaden its scope from 2021 onwards, in line with global Vodafone strategy and objectives around connecting for a better future, to include projects that have a focus on digital skills and keeping people connected.
