Grant to Develop a Green Space and Great Irish Bake Sale in Donabate raises €1,000 for Children’s Hospitals

News General News

The Community Foundation for Ireland has partnered with AXA to launch a grant round worth €3,000 to €20,000 that will enable local community organisations to develop and enhance a green space in their local area.

Successful projects will include all of the following aspects:

  • The green spaces will be on public land that is accessible to all members of the community.

(Exceptions apply for specific cases, for example refuges, schools, or community day care centres where the land might not be accessible to the whole community, but where the green space will be of huge benefit)

  • The green spaces and their development will encourage community engagement, participation and a sense of ownership in the local area.
  • The green spaces will improve the local environment through protecting current native biodiversity or supporting the recovery of neglected or damaged natural habitats.

The grant round closes at 4pm on Friday 20th May. Please click here for the full criteria and online application form. Applications sent in via email will not be accepted.
