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

If your organisation fits within these priority areas and you would like further information on how you can register your interest for support, please contact:
Emma Hennessy,

Please note that The Ireland Funds Small Grants Round and Flagship Awards have been postponed at this time so that we may focus on immediate COVID-19 needs.
Please revisit this space for updates.

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.

Flagship Awards

The Flagship Awards are currently closed. 

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.
