Philanthropist of the Year Awards
These awards aim to recognise extraordinary individuals who have shown outstanding leadership in the area of personal philanthropy and who have made a remarkable difference in bringing about sustainable social change
Setting up a fund at The Community Foundation
Individuals, families and other organisations can establish their charitable fund at The Community Foundation. We can then facilitate consistent and planned charitable giving through the expertise of our grants team
Developing Community Capital
Developing ‘community capital’ through the establishment of permanent endowment funds is central to our ethos. Our Grassroots grants scheme allows us to fund local community groups and charities right around the country not only now but continually into the future.
The Community Foundation for Ireland is an independent grant-making organisation. With over a decade of experience in dealing with community, voluntary and charitable organisations we are well placed to assess the needs of various communities and grant funding accordingly.
