Types of giving

  • We can establish a Donor Advised Fund (a charitable fund ) on behalf of your company, providing you with our grant-making expertise, governance and wide knowledge of community needs.
  • We can manage community investment and grant-making programmes on your behalf.
  • Community Benefit Funds: Companies increasingly make voluntary payments – commonly referred to as ‘community benefit funds’ in the communities they are working in. These voluntary payments which vary in value are often linked with renewable energy developments such as wind farms or other infrastructural projects.The Community Foundation for Ireland is building a track record as an independent third party with the capability of establishing and running such funds. The Foundation’s involvement is always post planning (when the requisite statutory permissions have been given for the project). The Foundation offers a professional, efficient and flexible service that avoids the need to set up a separate charitable trust, and which prioritises good governance and maximum impact from the fund in the community it supports. Since 2000, the Foundation has distributed over €25m to charitable causes and The Foundation has worked with over 3000 non-profit organisations at a national, regional and local level throughout Ireland supporting projects in many areas including, education, community development, health, the arts, older people and young people.For further details view our Corporate Brochure.
