Community Fund open for applications

Dublin Airport's Community Fund has re-opened for applications for a six-week period.

The airport's €10 million Community Fund was launched last summer with an annual investment of €400,000 over the next 25 years.

Support is focussed on areas such as; environment and sustainability, sports and recreation, social inclusion and community development, health and wellbeing, and culture and heritage.

The Community Fund supports projects in the neighbouring communities around Dublin Airport from Santry, south of the airport, to Rolestown in the north, and from Tyrrelstown in the west to Portmarnock in the east. Organisations such as voluntary groups or clubs, resident associations from local communities, and schools and colleges can apply.

Awards from the Community Fund are made by an independent Grant Making Panel, comprising former President of Fingal Dublin Chamber, Guy Thompson; Managing Director of Country Crest, Michael Hoey; daa Chief People Officer, Brian Drain and Dublin Airport Head of Marketing Louise Bannon. The Panel is chaired by Marian Burns, Director of Human Resources with DCU.

A clear step-by-step application guide and application forms can be found or via Applications close on March 16.
