There is a growing awareness amongst businesses in Ireland of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). The term CSR is often misconstrued as something only done by large corporates; however, it has huge benefits for SMEs and micro enterprises too. It acts in a way that shows a level of care for employees as well as the wider local community. A strong CSR ethos is a fantastic way to show a company cares and is willing to give back in some fashion.
For small to medium businesses this may be less formal and more intuitive, whereas in larger corporate companies these programmes are often embedded in their framework. Either way, MQI is more than happy to sit and listen to what your goals are, and from that starting point we can work together to build out a programme that will help achieve these goals.
Please visit our Virtual Tour of Riverbank where you’ll meet staff and get a feel for our culture.
We’ll provide fundraising advice and materials – everything to make your event a success. And we can also help get the word out on our social media channels.
Socks and Jocks
Give the gift of dignity. Collect new, packaged underwear, socks and toiletries for men and women who’ve come in for a hot shower. Call us at 01 524 0139 to find out what supplies are currently needed.
Payroll & Matched Giving
Payroll Giving is an easy way for your employees to donate to MQI’s work directly from their monthly salary. Monthly donations mean MQI can plan future support for people who need us. If your company also matches your employees’ donations, so much more can be achieved.
Share your expertise
A partnership can do even more than raise funds. Your expertise, free of charge, can be transformative. Please contact us if services-in-kind are something you’d like to explore.
Display our “Lived Experience” Exhibition
The stigma of addiction and recovery is real. It shames people and puts up barriers to rebuilding life and starting over. You can help to break down the stigma of addiction by displaying MQI’s “Lived Experience of Addiction” photo exhibition in your workplace. It’s a beautiful collection of photos designed to open conversations around addiction and homelessness.
Charity of the Year
We understand that Charity of the Year is a partnership between people and cultures, with shared passions and values. If you’d like to discuss ideas, let’s chat about what we can achieve together.
