Charity Impact Awards 2020 Ceremony

Join us for a special online extravaganza as we honour and celebrate organisations and individuals who make a positive contribution to their communities.

We believe that people, through their participation in community and voluntary organisations, social enterprise and charities, play a central role in improving and enriching life in Ireland. The aim of the Awards is to recognise and showcase this important contribution.

This inspiring annual event has become a highlight in our event calendar and reminds us of the passion and hard work that is behind the nonprofit sector in Ireland.

The winners of the 2020 Charity Impact Awards will be announced, and we will be joined by a host of familiar faces for a very special online celebration.

Everyone is welcome!
