100% of funds raised here will benefit Cork community initiatives with a social, environmental or economic impact. Our goal – to raise €100,000!
We are running this project in partnership with Social Innovation Fund Ireland (SIFI) who will match any and all donations made.
Our commitment is that 100% of the moneys raised here go directly to not-for-profit or social enterprises across Cork that are innovative, address a critical social issue such as health, inclusion, local economy, and environment, among others. Examples include Cork Life Centre, Cork ARC cancer support, FoodCloud and Foróige, to name but a few.
Fundraising continues until July 2019, after which an open call for applications will be launched by Social Innovation Fund Ireland.
The successful projects are will be announced at an awards ceremony in November 2019.
For those who wish to donate, this project offers an opportunity to invest in a progressive, innovative projects that will lead to more resilient, engaged and thriving communities.
