The Ireland Funds – Grants

The COVID-19 pandemic is proving devastating to nonprofit organizations across the island of Ireland. The key services they provide to Ireland’s communities have never been more vital. 

The Ireland Funds COVID-19 Response Fund is supporting charities in the following priority areas at this challenging time:

  • Food and Food Distribution
  • Disability Support
  • Domestic & Child Abuse (Family Support)
  • Elderly Services
  • Access to Education
  • Mental Health
  • Community Support

We are working hard to provide support where the need is greatest and appreciate the challenges you are facing as you assist your communities across Ireland.

Please note that The Ireland Funds Small Grants Round, Flagship Awards and COVID-19 Response Fund are not open for new applications at this time as we focus on fulfilling existing requests.

Please revisit this space for updates.
