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.

A Flagship Award can be up to €100,000 in financial support over a two-year period, together with an array of additional non-financial supports. A total of €500,000 is available for the Flagship Awards in 2019.

The Ireland Funds Small Grants Round supports a wide range of not-for-profit and community organisations in the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland.

The Small Grants Round offers awards up to €10,000 for small community organisations and for organisations that have not previously been supported by The Ireland Funds. Projects seeking larger grant amounts will not be considered for the Small Grants Round.

A total of €500,000 is available for the Small Grants Round 2019 comprised of:

  • 30 x €2,500 awards
  • 55 x €5,000 awards
  • 15 x €10,000 awards
