Google Ireland Employees supporting deserving students.

A number of Google employees have recently chosen the UCD Champions – Changing Futures Scholarship appeal as their preferred charity for company gift matching and volunteering donations. We are delighted to announce, because of these efforts, that this autumn the first UCD Champion Scholar supported by Google staff volunteering and gift matching will be starting in UCD.


If you would like to get involved you can do so in a number of different ways.

  • Through Benevity, you can allocate your Google for Doers volunteering donation towards the ‘UCD Champions – Changing Futures’ project.
  • If you have made a direct donation to UCD Foundation you can log on to the Google Gift Matching service, where you can apply to have your gift doubled by Google.
  • You can also make a donation online through the donate now button at the top of this page. Gifts of over €250 per year are not only eligible to be matched by Google but are also eligible for tax relief at a rate of 45%. This means a gift of €250 in one calendar year would be worth €612 to us at no extra cost to you.

On behalf of the students who will benefit from your generosity we would like to thank you for the incredible chance you will give them.
