The Dublin Airport Community Fund was officially launched in June this year and we are delighted to announce that the Fund is now open to applications from Friday, September, 1 until 5pm, Friday, October 13, 2017. Local community groups and other interested parties located within the fund’s catchment area are invited to apply.
Dublin Airport is investing €400,000 per year over the next 25 years in local projects focussed on areas such as environment and sustainability, sports and recreation, social inclusion and community development, health and wellbeing, and culture and heritage. This investment is building on decades of support that Dublin Airport has provided to local communities in the past and ensures that, as the airport grows with additional facilities such as the new North Runway, our support for our neighbouring communities also grows.
Awards from the Community Fund will be made by an independent Grant Making Panel chaired by Ms. Marian Burns, Director of Human Resources with DCU. The Grant Making Panel also includes two representatives from local businesses and two representatives from Dublin Airport.
