Bank of Ireland Launches Begin Together Fund (Updated Deadline)

Posted on 28 Feb 2020

The Begin Together Fund will provide valuable investment for community initiatives making a difference in towns and villages across the island of Ireland.

 Update: deadline extended to 9 April 2020.

Bank of Ireland’s Begin Together Fund wants to get behind those making the lives of others in their communities better by improving their financial , physical and mental well-being. Fortunately, in every town and village there are people, businesses and organisations working hard to make things better for everyone. Bank of Ireland supports them and their work in communities all across the island of Ireland. 

We want to get behind those trying to make the lives of others in their communities better by improving their financial, physical and mental wellbeing. Whatever their ideas, we want to help them to succeed.

Let’s Begin Together.


The Begin Together fund will support new and existing project-based activities with grants of up to €5,000 (or the sterling equivalent) for local, not for profit groups working to improve the financial physical and/or mental wellbeing of the communities they serve across all counties on the island of Ireland.

Applications are welcome from charities and not-for-profit community groups working in communities that address one or more of the strands of wellbeing as outlined in the fund criteria which can be found here.

Interested organisations are invited to complete the online application form before 5pm on 9 April (updated from 31 March).
