Our Brand Partnerships

Working with Corporate Partners

The organisations that choose to partner with Breast Cancer Ireland do so for a variety of reasons. Sometimes it’s in honour of a much-loved colleague, friend or family member who has been impacted by the disease, other times it’s to educate and inform important stakeholders on the importance of good breast health.

Whatever the reason, we value and nurture our corporate partnerships, working closely with in-house teams to engage your people across the business

We work together to amplify good breast health messages. We get behind fundraising campaigns, internal communications, and employee engagement opportunities and most importantly, we share information with your people on where the funds they have worked so hard to raise and donate are spent

Spotlight on some of our current Corporate Partners

Breast Cancer Ireland has been partnering with Glanbia since 2014 when they first came on board as title sponsors of Great Pink Run. Over the past 8 years, the relationship has deepened, with many hundreds of employees taking part annually and thousands raised and donated by their people each year. Other initiatives such as Two Peaks Challenge, Pink Bales and Plant Pink have continued to support our efforts and have served to enrich the partnership.

“We are delighted to share the wonderful news that Glanbia’s partnership with BCI has enabled the charity to award a new Research Fellowship, researching treatment and therapies for a subtype of breast cancer more prevalent in younger women”

Director of Corporate Affairs
Glanbia plc – 2018


Joe Duffy Group have been stellar supporters over several years, sponsoring various important initiatives and campaigns, often calling upon their own employees to step up and get involved when asked to do so. We love working with the Joe Duffy team, we value their support and their commitment, which has allowed us to raise vital funds for pioneering research.

“Collaborating with the team in Breast Cancer Ireland has been rewarding on so many levels. We are proud to be associated with the charity and to see for ourselves, year after year, the real and tangible impact our efforts are making in research discoveries and treatment for those diagnosed. It goes to prove to me that together we are stronger and where there is teamwork and real partnership, amazing things can be achieved.”

Cornmarket, the largest public sector financial services broker in the country have been supporters of Breast Cancer Ireland since 2017, initially becoming associate sponsors of Battle of the Stars. Cornmarket then went on to support our Breast Health Awareness & Education Programme for TY students. The programme has gone from strength to strength and in 2019, Breast Cancer Ireland teamed up with Cornmarket and teacher union, the INTO to launch the Breast Health Awareness & Education Programme to primary school teachers and support staff throughout Ireland.

“When I spot one of one of our pink cars as they travel around the country, I’m immediately filled with a sense of pride in the organisation I work for, and how through our wonderful partnership with Breast Cancer Ireland, we really are helping to change the landscape of the disease into the future”
