Heart of the Community Fund 2022

In April 2021, The Ireland Funds launched the Heart of the Community Fund. It was designed to support organisations striving to meet the ever-growing needs of people across the island of Ireland. The past two years have shown that the age-old adage of ‘the heart of the community’ is personified by organisations who work tirelessly to support their communities through crisis.

The Heart of the Community Fund 2022 aims to continue that vital support with a fund of at least €500,000.
