With over 30 staff volunteers, the Goodbody Student Managed Fund, now in its sixth year, supports an investment fund competition and education programme that spans the academic year in conjunction with five 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.
In 2019, Goodbody chose to partner with An Cosán, the community education charity because of its emphasis on education and the support it offers its local community. As well as fundraising, sharing our in-house skills and expertise to the organisation is an important part of this partnership and a crucial staff engagement initiative. Goodbody and An Cosán were announced as joint winners of The People’s Choice Award as part of The Charity Excellence Awards 2020 from Charities Institute Ireland. Not only do these awards celebrate excellence across charity partnerships - we are so proud that this award also reflects the voice of the entire community.
Goodbody is a proud supporter of the Goodbody Rugby Players Ireland Personal Development Bursary programme which aides the development and progression of players' off-field careers and academic studies as well as career, business development, retirement transition and financial guidance to their members.
