Dublin Airport Community Fund

Your ideas, Our Support

The Community Fund is currently open for applications. It will remain open for a period of six weeks, closing on Wednesday, February 12, 2020. 

The Dublin Airport Community Fund supports local projects that make a positive contribution to our neighbouring communities. 


About the Dublin Airport Community Fund

Kids Gardening

For decades, Dublin Airport has been a supporter of community activities, promoting development in education, literacy, sports and the arts.

Through the Fund we will be continuing this important work and also offering additional support to many more local initiatives, in recognition of the crucial role that our communities play in the success of Dublin Airport.


We will support applications from organisations located in the following areas:

Ballymun     • Cloghran     • Forrest Little     • Greater Baskin     • Hollystown     • Malahide     • Portmarnock     • Rolestown    • Santry     • St. Margarets     • Swords     • The Ward     • Tyrrelstown

We are interested in working with communities on developing initiatives around, for example, environmental and sustainability, health and wellbeing and social inclusion.
