Arts to Impact Fund
The Arts to Impact Fund has been created by Social Innovation Fund Ireland (SIFI) in partnership with the Department of Rural and Community Development. The Department of Rural and Community Development provides match funding for all philanthropic funds raised by Social Innovation Fund Ireland, via the Dormant Accounts Fund.
Arts and culture have always been important aspects of human civilisation, both promoting individual expression and strengthening and bridging communities. SIFI recognises the power of arts and culture to improve lives. Through the Arts to Impact Fund, they are aiming to support the most innovative projects across the country that are using arts and culture as a means to create positive social impact in Ireland.
As part of the application requirements, SIFI are asking applicants to demonstrate that they have secured private or philanthropic funding for the duration of this fund. If the applicant is successful, SIFI will match their donation by providing a 50% uplift on their funds, as well as delivering other supports such as training, impact measurement and capacity building.
