Grants Workshops

Grants Workshops

The Ireland Funds support non-profit organisations by delivering grants workshops in locations around Ireland and Northern Ireland.

These workshops are particularly beneficial for organisations that are new to The Ireland Funds. Workshops are free to attend and cover:

  • The Ireland Funds’ grant-making process
  • Our programme areas and funding priorities
  • Examples of strong versus weak applications
  • Tips on what makes a competitive application for both funding rounds


The Ireland Funds hosted a number of Grants Workshops in August and September, 2019
