In July 2014, we launched the Tesco Community Fund. Through this we donate €120,000 every eight weeks to local projects in the communities around each of our 149 stores.
So how does it work?
- Every eight weeks, we donate up to €1,000 between three local projectss in each of the communities we have our stores in.
- Each time our customers shop in their local Tesco store, they receive a blue token at the checkout to place in the donation box of the local good cause they would most like to support.
- Then at the end of the eight weeks, the number of tokens are counted and up to €1,000 is distributed between three local good causes. The more tokens a local project gets, the larger share of the donation they receive from us.
- 450 projects across Ireland receive a donation through the Tesco Community Fund every eight weeks!
So if you know of any projects, charities, social initiatives or clubs in your local area, make sure you spread the word and encourage them to join in! Application forms can be found in store.

And don’t forget – every customer gets a blue token with every transaction!!
