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.


Our Grant Writing Workshops can help you prepare a competitive funding application.
