You can take a look back through our previous funds to get a flavour for what we’ve been looking for during past open calls. Please note that while each fund has a different goal and different advantageous criteria, our core criteria always apply:

  • The project must address a critical social issue 
  • The project proposed must be innovative in an Irish context
  • The project must have potential and a desire to scale or replicate in Ireland (it may also have potential internationally, but this is not a requirement)
  • The project must provide evidence that it is up and running, or has been tested at least in a minimal way
  • The project must be based on the island of Ireland and make its main impact in the Republic of Ireland
  • Applicants must come from an entity that has a not-for-profit legal form e.g. charity, company limited by guarantee, trust etc
