In the face of current challenges facing the Irish Community and Voluntary sector, all organisations are looking at ways of working differently. In certain limited circumstances, some organisations may see benefit in exploring merging permanently with another organisation, or consortium of like-minded organisations. We have a small fund which might allow such organisations or consortiums to explore this. It is for the facilitation of early-stage discussions and negotiations, and not the process of merging in action.
The Community Foundation for Ireland is inviting Expressions of Interest from organisations that operate or provide support to communities in Dublin 1, Ballybough, East Wall or Ringsend, for a once-off opportunity to apply for funding from a private corporate donor located in the area.
