As Ireland loses its biodiversity at an unprecedented rate, it is vital that communities engage with biodiversity conservation at a local level. So to help make this possible, The Community Foundation for Ireland is offering one grant of €10,000 and five grants of €5,000 to organisations who are undertaking new projects that aim to protect, enhance, restore or create biodiverse habitats, or protect and provide shelter and/or food sources for native Irish species. If you are part of a formal or informal group/network engaging with members of the community, are involved in this sort of practical conservation, and have an income of not more than €1,000,000 per year, we are interested in hearing from you.
The Youth Participation Panel (YPP) is the first youth grant making programme to be established by The Community Foundation for Ireland. The YPP is made up of four young people, aged 16- 30 who are passionate about creating a better Ireland for our young people.
