Why Support the Fund

Dublin-Pride-why-support - LGBT Fund - the Community Foundation for ireland The LGBT Fund for Ireland exists so people can donate to a broad range of causes that benefit the community. It is the donating option people choose when they want their money to benefit the LGBT community as a whole and not just one specific cause.

Relatively few charitable bequests are currently received by LGBT charities in Ireland. The LGBT Fund provides a new avenue to positively address this situation and to provide an opportunity to make a real difference through their will. The LGBT Fund for Ireland sits within, and is managed by us. We are a registered charity and as a donor services organisation, one of the leading grant-makers in Ireland that has been providing donations to LGBT organisations in Ireland since 2000, on behalf of third party donors.

Our governance structures are such that we are highly open, respected and trusted charitable organisation.

The LGBT Fund pools charitable bequests; and other funding received; to make grants to a broad base of LGBT not for profit organisations across Ireland. Grant-making from this Fund is thoughtful, informed and insightful and reflects the needs of the day.
