The support GOAL receives from corporate partners is inspiring. Companies of all sizes, from global multi-nationals to local family owned businesses, have a huge impact on the lives of communities experiencing poverty and crisis through their support. These partnerships help to drive innovation, sector collaboration and new ways of working.
Innovative Partnership in Action
In Uganda, thousands of young people are earning a living through support from the Mastercard Foundation.
In Honduras, communities affected by Covid-19 will be able to benefit from a state-of-the-art new hospital ward, utilising Kingspan’s sustainable products and systems knowledge.
In Ireland, AIB, Folens and Shamrock Rovers are helping to raise awareness of the challenges faced by the vulnerable communities we support.
Companies are engaging their staff and reaching their corporate social responsibility goals through partnerships and by participating in GOAL events and staff volunteering days.

Major Corporate Partners
We are hugely grateful to AIB for their incredible support over the last year.
As part of a three year partnership, AIB have helped to drive GOAL's flagship fundraising event, the annual GOAL Mile. This powerful partnership connects the GOAL Mile with an even greater community of supporters, amplifying the sense of solidarity shared across the country with vulnerable communities across the world.
AIB have also provided crucial support to help GOAL response to the ongoing humanitarian crisis in Ukraine.
Kingspan are generously providing critical support worth €1.5 million over the next five-years to develop transformative infrastructure with sustainability at its core in healthcare and education.
In the first year of the partnership, GOAL and Kingspan have teamed up to build a new wing at a vital hospital in Puerto Cortes, Honduras. The project, implemented by GOAL’s humanitarian support staff, will utilise Kingspan’s sustainable products and systems to build a state-of-the-art, 24-bed ward for general care in the hospital.
GOAL is partnering with the Mastercard Foundation to help 300,000 young Ugandans, aged 16-35, access dignified and fulfilling employment over the next five years. 30,000 refugees and 15,000 young people living with disabilities are set to benefit from the programme.
Uganda has one of the youngest populations in the world with more than 75% of people below the age of 30. GOAL and the Mastercard Foundation are focused on finding solutions to the youth employment challenge and reducing poverty in Uganda using a markets system approach.
GOAL was honoured to receive Folens’ backing for Jersey Day in 2021. Every year, hundreds of schools and businesses across Ireland get their kit on for GOAL - a fun, colourful, and easy way to give back to communities in need around the world.
Folens helped promote one of our biggest Jersey Days yet - kindly offering special prizes to teachers who register their class for the event. The money raised on GOAL Jersey Day allows GOAL staff to respond quickly and effectively to crises, providing life-saving support and rebuilding communities across the globe.
Celebrating a shared passion for Irish sport, GOAL is proud of its partnership with Shamrock Rovers Football Club. The partnership has seen Rovers getting behind numerous fundraisers.
As well as donning their hoops for Jersey Day, Rovers supporters joined friends and family at the long-established, much loved Tallaght GOAL Mile last December.
Shamrock Rovers have also provided incredible support to help GOAL's response to the ongoing conflict in Ukraine.
OUR PARTNER NETWORK
A special thanks to the Dropbox Foundation
It is estimated that approximately 8.5 million infants between birth and 6 months are suffering from acute malnutrition.
But with support from the Dropbox Foundation GOAL has developed a new innovative tool, a MUAC (mid upper arm circumference) tape, that is helping to save the lives of thousands of malnourished babies in the developing world.
The easy-to-use new tool aims to support quick identification of at-risk infants under six months by both community health workers and, most importantly, by families themselves.
