The Ireland Funds is delighted to officially announce €1 million in available funding for our 2019 Grant Round. The €1 million will be split evenly across the Flagship Awards and the Small Grants Round.
Flagship Awards 2019
The Flagship Awards 2019 are now closed for applications. Late submissions will not be accepted. Thank you to all who submitted a letter of inquiry.
The Ireland Funds Flagship Awards offers grants for core funding, capacity building or programme costs for charitable organisations working within one of our key programme areas: Arts & Culture, Community Development, Education, and Peace & Reconciliation. Our aim is to improve the quality and sustainability of existing programmes, or to help scale initiatives already demonstrating impact.
A Flagship Award can be up to €100,000 in financial support over a two-year period, together with an array of additional non-financial supports. A total of €500,000 is available for the Flagship Awards in 2019.

Opening Soon: Applications for the Small Grants Round will be accepted online from 12pm on 21st August – 12pm on 11th September 2019.
The Ireland Funds Small Grants Round supports a wide range of not-for-profit and community organisations in the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland.
The Small Grants Round offers awards up to €10,000 for small community organisations and for organisations that have not previously been supported by The Ireland Funds. Projects seeking larger grant amounts will not be considered for the Small Grants Round.
A total of €500,000 is available for the Small Grants Round 2019 comprised of:
- 30 x €2,500 awards
- 55 x €5,000 awards
- 15 x €10,000 awards
Overview of The Ireland Funds Grant making
Flagship Awards Overview
Over the last 40 years, The Ireland Funds has supported over 3,200 non-profit organizations across the island of Ireland working in the areas of Arts & Culture, Community Development, Education and Peace & Reconciliation.
In addition to facilitating a significant number of Donor Advised Grants, The Ireland Funds also operate two competitive grant rounds each year—the Small Grants Round and the Flagship Awards. We also provide non-financial support including grant workshops, fundraising advice and training.
Donor Advised Grants
The majority of grants are made possible through Donor Advised Grants, whereby donors are introduced to projects by The Ireland Funds that match their interests.
If your organization has questions about Donor Advised Grants, please contact our Grants Team representative, Ciara McConnell.
