Concern Worldwide received the Branding, Communications and Marketing award at the annual Chartered Accountants Ireland Leinster Society Published Accounts Awards last night.
Winning the award was a phenomenal achievement, Concern CEO Dominic MacSorley said, and a welcome recognition of the work done in 2018 to mark the organisation’s 50th anniversary. The Irish charity was among 36 organisations from across the Irish business community shortlisted for the award.
“This award highlights the commitment that Concern devotes to clear, consistent, accountable reporting,” he said. “It is vital that we are accountable to everyone who supports our work, including the public who have been Concern’s largest donors. This support enabled us to reach 24 million of the world’s poorest and most vulnerable people last year.”
This is the 29th time that Concern has been shortlisted by the Chartered Accountants Ireland Leinster Society Published Accounts Awards since 1988.
