Change for Charity

Change for Charity is based on the Central Bank’s Rounding Initiative to try to reduce the number of 1c and 2c coins in circulation in Ireland.

Think your 1c and 2c coins don’t have a value? Think again!

YOUR small change could make a very big difference for Gaisce – The President’s Award and four other great Irish charities.

Gaisce is thrilled to be involved with Change for Charity  – a nationwide campaign to collect 1c and 2c coins in response to the Central Bank Of Ireland’s ‘rounding inititative’, which aims to reduce the number of 1c and 2c coins in circulation in Ireland.

Everyone can play a role in supporting the Campaign including retailers and sponsors but especially the wider public by helping out with coin collection or just by simply donating your 1c and 2c coins at a collection point near you.

We are proud to be both a supporter of the campaign and grateful to be one of the charities to benefit from the money raised. For more information on the charities that benefit and how to get involved, please see or visit Facebook or Twitter

National Coin Week – November 2nd – 8th 2015. Central Bank announces the rollout of rounding 1c and 2c coins on October 28th, 2015. Don’t let the bank keep your coppers! Donate your 1c and 2c coins during #NationalCoinWeek at one of our collection points across Ireland.
