About Social Innovation Fund Ireland

Social Innovation Fund Ireland is a national organisation supporting Ireland’s best social innovations through cash grants and business supports. Our purpose is to make Ireland a better more inclusive place through social innovation. Every euro we raise in philanthropy is matched by a euro from the Dormant Accounts Fund via the Department of Rural and Community Development and more recently the Department of Children and Youth Affairs and the Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection. We partner with corporates, SME’s, families and individuals who want new, tangible and real-world ways to tackle some of the pressing issues facing our country today.

We are an equal opportunity employer and we strongly believe that diversity and inclusion equate to success and help us to achieve our highest potential as an organisation. The work we do is underpinned by mutual respect, equality, inclusion and diversity.

Our Values

  • We work with our hearts and our heads – we value compassion, passion and fun.
  • We take smart risks and we allow permission to fail because we know that innovation and risk are two sides of the same coin.
  • We believe that social change is a team sport – we use influence and engagement to build trusted relationships, and we choose to collaborate to achieve our goals.
  • We demonstrate curiosity and a hunger to learn.
  • We value bold ideas and bold leadership, and we develop remarkable people.
  • Like all staff, be an Ambassador for Social Innovation Fund Ireland at all times.
