Corporate social responsibility

At RSM, we believe it's important for us to give back to the wider communities in which we operate and to support local charities. We are dedicated to operating in a socially and environmentally responsible way to better the communities which we work and live in.

Our charity partner: 

Children's Health Foundation Crumlin

This year we are delighted to partner with Children’s Health Foundation Crumlin as our charity partner for 2023.

Children’s Health Foundation raises vital funds to support sick children and their families in Children’s Health Ireland (CHI) hospitals and urgent care centres – from funding vital life-saving equipment and providing essential patient and parental supports to making ground-breaking, paediatric research possible.

This year, our charity efforts are focused on supporting children living with cancer. Every child in Ireland with cancer, up to the age of 16, is cared for by the incredibly skilled and caring team at Children’s Health Ireland at Crumlin (formerly Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital Crumlin). Around 190 children and teenagers under the age of 16 are diagnosed with cancer in Ireland each year.

The vision of Children’s Health Foundation is to give every sick child the very best chance, and RSM Ireland is proud to support this incredible cause. Find out more about the work they do here.

 

Supporting Ride4Dray

This summer, retired RSM US Partner Jim Clarahan, is embarking on a 120-day motorcycle journey through 37 countries in Europe with the hope of visiting over 50 RSM offices – including RSM Ireland which will be the finish line of his trip in August. Jim’s heartfelt mission is to raise awareness of the symptoms of tumours and brain cancer in children under five years old, and to raise funds for local not-for-profit organisations where possible. Jim is driven by the story of his grandson, who was diagnosed with a brain tumour several years ago. We are delighted to support Jim’s mission through our partnership with Children’s Health Foundation Crumlin.

Dare to be Brave Abseil

As part of our charity partnership with Children’s Health Foundation Crumlin, we are excited to take part in the Dare to be Brave Croke Park Abseil Challenge on Friday 25th August 2023.

A brave RSM Ireland team will be taking part in this experience - all for a great cause! 

Funds raised from this adventure will help Children’s Health Foundation to do even more for sick children; to continue supporting essential projects, funding new initiatives and making paediatric research possible.
