The Community Foundation for Ireland - Big Funding Opportunity


The Community Foundation for Ireland is inviting Expressions of Interest from organisations that operate or provide support to communities in Dublin 1, Ballybough, East Wall or Ringsend, for a once-off opportunity to apply for funding from a private corporate donor located in the area.

The corporate donor will commit funding of up to €250,000 per annum for the next 3-5 years to the selected charity partner. The fund aims to provide funding to organisations supporting Children and Young People (up to 25 years). Initiatives which support early childhood and/or adolescent development, mental health and educational attainment are of particular interest.

The corporate donor is a global leader in its sector and wishes to identify a project which will be a flagship of the company’s commitment to the community and will recognise its place in Ireland. It will focus on making a real difference to its selected charity and demonstrate the importance of CSR to others in the business community.

The corporate donor has engaged The Community Foundation for Ireland as they are one of the leading grant making organisations in Ireland and have a strong record of working with corporate clients in managing and administering corporate funds on their behalf. Since 2000, The Community Foundation for Ireland and its donors have distributed over €45m to charitable organisations, underpinned by its long term endowed fund of over €43m. The Community Foundation works with a number of corporate donors based in Ireland and abroad.
