Medtronic, the global leader in medical technology, yesterday launched the application process for the Medtronic Healthy Communities Fund.
The fund will seek to work with national charities, or not-for-profit organisations, with innovative proposals that address one of three core objectives; better access to health care; health promotion and assuring health equality in communities around Ireland.
The first phase of funding will see €180,000 available to charities or not-for-profit organisations based in Ireland.
Organisations can apply for a minimum grant of €20,000 and a maximum grant of €50,000.
Applications for funding will be accepted online up until September 15, 2015 through the Community Foundation for Ireland.
Details on the Fund are available at www.foundation.ie.
