Since our establishment in 2000, we have awarded over €30 million in grants to voluntary, community and not-for-profit organisations throughout the country. As a community foundation we award grants from our own funds in addition to the grants we administer on behalf of others. As an independent grant-making organisation, we use the monies from our own permanent endowment and by our donors and philanthropists to distribute grants to various causes and groups right across the country. Please visit our Types of grants section, for information on these grant rounds.
Our types of grants section also contains information about the various grant schemes managed by us on behalf of our donors. All our grant schemes have specific and individual criteria for applications so please read carefully to ensure that you understand the causes supported by each grant scheme and apply appropriately.
