Social Innovation Fund Ireland, in partnership with Bank of America and the Department of Rural and Community Development, are delighted to officially launch the Mná na hÉireann, Women of Ireland Fund.
The Mná na hÉireann Fund, Women of Ireland is a €1.8 Million Fund created by Social Innovation Fund Ireland in partnership with Bank of America and the Department of Rural and Community Development. The Department of Rural and Community Development provides match funding for all philanthropic funds raised by Social Innovation Fund Ireland, via the Dormant Accounts Fund.
The Mná na hÉireann, Women of Ireland Fund is the first fund in Ireland to support charities and social enterprises that seek to enhance the economic mobility of women and is designed specifically to equip these organisations to expand their business acumen, drive growth and deepen their impact across Ireland.
We are calling for applications from organisations that support and empower women to progress their education or progress into new or more sustainable employment.
