Funding: Ignite Midwest Fund 2021 by Rethink Ireland

The Ignite Midwest Fund is accepting applications from organisations in Counties Clare, Limerick and Tipperary.

The Ignite Midwest Fund will provide a package of awards and supports to innovative not-for-profit organisations that are working to empower communities, tackle inequality, poverty, or social exclusion; and/or promote recovery and prevention in the counties of Clare, Limerick, and Tipperary.

This one-year Fund is open to community groups, charities, or social enterprises that support children, young people, or adults who are experiencing poverty, socio-economic disadvantage, or geographic isolation. Two awards will specifically be for projects that are using music as a means of promoting social inclusion and/or wellbeing in the region.

Please note that there are up to two awards of up to €55,000 for projects that are using music as a means of promoting social inclusion. This includes a cash grant of up to €44,000.

Rethink Ireland is inviting applications from organisations or projects within organisations, that:

  • support people who are marginalised or are experiencing poverty, disadvantage, or geographic isolation;
  • have a sustained impact in the counties of Clare, Limerick or Tipperary. Projects should either have their main base in one of these counties, or be part of an organisation with a branch or particular focus and impact in one or more of these counties.

Applications will close at 5pm on Monday, 29 March 2021.
