Through our Awards Programmes we provide funding, mentoring and support to high potential social entrepreneurs and their projects.

Every year we hold an open call for applications which is followed by a multi-stage selection process to determine the projects we will support that particular year. Our two programmes cater for projects at various stages of development and aim to support social entrepreneurs with the greatest potential to bring about positive change to Ireland’s most pressing social and environmental challenges.


Impact Programme:

Our Impact Programme looks to support social entrepreneurs with established and effective projects that have the potential to scale significantly – creating widespread and long term social impact.


Elevator Programme

Our Elevator Programme offers support to social entrepreneurs in the earliest stages of their projects. Through this 12 month programme we help refine ideas and implement the required structures to build a sustainable and scalable organisation.
