Charities and Community Partnerships

Goodbody is proud to partner with several of Ireland’s leading charities and philanthropic organisations to sponsor programmes and events that give back to the community and represent who we are as a firm.

The partners highlighted below represent the four major areas of charitable giving that Goodbody is committed to: investing in our community, ongoing support of the arts, furthering health research and prevention, and a commitment to environmental protection and preservation. Find out more about each of our partners and how we work with them below. 

Investing in Social Programmes that Enhance our Community




The Goodbody Student Managed Fund

With over 30 staff volunteers, the Goodbody Student Managed Fund supports an investment fund competition and education programme that spans the academic year in conjunction with six universities in Ireland. This initiative gives students the opportunity to get real, hands-on experience of managing equity funds as well as mentoring and networking as they embark on their careers.


Focus Ireland

Focus Ireland is a charitable organisation that has been committed to ending homelessness in Ireland since 1985. Goodbody supports their Aftercare Programme, which is designed to assist young people aging out of state care, tackling the root causes of homelessness by providing these young adults with accommodation, job training and financial skills. 

Sponsorship of this programme presented Goodbody with a unique opportunity to help prevent youth homelessness in one of the most vulnerable demographics, by providing financial support and skill sharing to help these young people be independent and successful in the future. 


Dublin LGBTQ+ Pride

Dublin LGBTQ+ Pride is an organisation dedicated to raising awareness of the discrimination faced by LGBTQ+ people, by promoting diversity and inclusion in society and championing equality for all people. 

Goodbody is focused on supporting the organisation’s conferences, events, and annual parade, as well as delivering Pride at Work training to educate employees about the unique challenges faced by the LGBTQ+ community. Our goal in working with Dublin LGBTQ+ Pride, is to make Goodbody an ally partner and work towards eradicating conscious and unconscious bias. 


Together Academy

Together Academy is a social enterprise providing tailored training and employment opportunities for adults with Down syndrome in Ireland. The organisation offers QQI accredited training, a pathways programme and tailored supports. Together Academy’s work is done with the hopes of improving employment prospects of young adults with Down syndrome, who currently face a 90% unemployment rate nationwide. Goodbody is proud to support the organisation’s Ballsbridge café both as sponsors and patrons. 


The Irish Student Entrepreneurship Forum (ISEF)

Goodbody is proud to be a continued supporter of the ISEF, which is a student-run, non-profit initiative that provides a platform for student entrepreneurs in Ireland to launch and grow their businesses. As part of this year’s multi-stage competition, Goodbody will ask students to focus on sustainability as a component of their submission. To demonstrate our commitment to ESG, we will be awarding the top environmentally-friendly submission with the Goodbody Sustainability Award.

Supporting the Arts and Creating New Heritage  




The Hugh Lane Gallery

The Hugh Lane Gallery is the world's oldest living public Gallery of Modern Art, including the Francis Bacon Studio, exhibitions, and education programmes. Goodbody will sponsor the exhibit, Bones in the Attic, running from August - October 2022. 

This exhibit will feature Ireland’s top female artists alongside up and coming talent and offer a series of complementary lectures and educational programmes. We’re excited to offer employees and clients exclusive access to this programme that is rooted both in Celtic mythology and current day identity. 


Sculpture in Context

Sculpture in Context is the longest running, largest and most important sculpture exhibition in the country. This free event is held annually in the family-friendly National Botanic Gardens and brings together nearly 150 Irish artists of all ages and backgrounds. Goodbody is proud to continue supporting this accessible exhibit with prizes for established and emerging sculptors. 


Business to Arts

Business to Arts is an organisation that builds creative partnerships between the arts and businesses; so that the creativity of both communities can be harnessed in concert to develop high-quality cultural experiences and world-class collaborations across Ireland. Goodbody is proud to continue working with Business to Arts, as they work to bring meaningful projects to light and provide a voice to individual artists, exhibits and studios.

Furthering Health Research and Prevention




Breast Cancer Ireland

Breast Cancer Ireland was established to raise significant funding to support pioneering research programmes, as well as to provide education and awareness about the importance of good breast health amongst women of all ages and backgrounds. Through our partnership we’ll provide funding, fundraising, employee workshops, co-sponsor educational podcasts and provide volunteers for the Great Pink Run that takes place in Dublin, Kilkenny and online.

Committed to Environmental Protection and Preservation




Leave No Trace Ireland

Leave No Trace Ireland provides research, education, and outreach to help the public protect and enjoy the outdoors responsibly. The organisation seeks to limit the impacts that come with the increased use of recreational areas. 

Our partnership with Leave No Trace Ireland aims to educate our employees on how to reduce their impact on recreational areas and provides opportunities to get hands on in helping to clean up overused spaces. 


Native Woodland Trust

The Native Woodland Trust strives to preserve existing native woodlands, create new woodlands using native seed and provide education to the masses about Ireland’s native forests. The organisation strives to raise awareness about Ireland’s former natural landscape, native trees and how to build a more sustainable future. Goodbody supports the Native Woodland Trust’s preservation efforts, and the organisation’s ongoing educational work.


UCD Michael Smurfit Graduate Business School Scholarships – MSc in Renewable Energy and Environmental Finance

This MSc course can be undertaken by graduates from a variety of backgrounds, both from an educational and career perspective, with the intention of pursuing a career in the sustainable finance industry.

Goodbody is supporting this cutting-edge qualification, to help develop future talent that will undoubtedly bring a focus on sustainability to the financial services industry post course.
