Dublin Airport’s Community Fund Reopens For Applications

Dublin Airport’s Community Fund has reopened for applications and will remain open for a period of six weeks until Monday February 12, 2019.

Support is focussed on areas such as: environment and sustainability, sports and recreation, social inclusion and community development, health and well-being and culture and heritage.

The Community Fund supports projects in the neighbouring communities around Dublin Airport.

“We’re delighted to once again invite local community groups to apply for funding from the Dublin Airport Community Fund and encourage all eligible groups to apply,” said daa Community Liaison Manager Maura Cassidy.

Among the groups that received funding in November 2019 were the Lambay Singers based in Swords, which received a contribution towards the purchase of a digital piano, Gaelscoil an Chuilinn in Tyrellstown where the fund contributed towards the development of a sensory room in the school, Rivermeade FC in St. Margaret’s and Ballymun Kickhams GFC both of which bought new goalposts.

The Fund also supports up to 10 students per year from economic disadvantaged backgrounds to enable them to attend Dublin City University (DCU) via its Access Programme.

Groups applying for funding can find an easy how-to-apply guide along with an application form on the airport’s website www.dublinairport.com/community-fund.
