Charities across Ireland have only 10 days left to apply
- Ecclesiastical’s Movement for Good awards is giving away a further €500,000 – with one charity set to receive a life changing €110,000.
- The deadline for charities to submit their applications is Friday 6 August 2021.
For the third year running, Ecclesiastical is giving away over €1million (£1million) to charities through its Movement for Good awards.
Through the second phase of giving, 30 charities will be chosen by a panel of judges to receive €10,000 to be put towards the advancement of heritage and arts, education, rural and community, climate, human rights and equality. What’s more, two charities will benefit from an additional €50,000 each and another will receive an additional life changing €100,000 award.
Charities across the island of Ireland are invited to submit their applications before Friday 6 August 2021.
Applications will be assessed against four key areas: impact and effectiveness, sustainability, innovation, and care and compassion.
Designed to give eligible charities the financial assistance they need to make a real difference, the funding can be used within three years and for a blend of project and core funding costs.
David Lane, Managing Director of Ecclesiastical in Ireland, said: “At Ecclesiastical we believe business should be a force for good. Charitable causes need sustained support and a sense of financial stability. Through the second phase of our Movement for Good awards we are actively championing innovation, giving charities the backing they need to propel their plans forward and turn creative ideas into practical solutions that benefit society. We hope to see a number of strong applications from Ireland between now and 6 August, so we can continue to help charities at a time when they need it most.”
