The Cork Street Fund was established in 1960 with the mission to assist “the sick and poor of Dublin”. It was granted an endowment from the closing of the Cork Street Fever Hospital and the opening of the new Dublin Fever Hospital. The Fund uses income from this endowment and other donations received to fund its activities. The Fund supports a wide range of groups working with people in need. The Fund is managed by Members who operate on a voluntary basis and administrative costs are minimal.
The Cork Street Fund considers applications for grants from bodies or groups that provide care or support to those in need within the Dublin area. For further information on conditions and how to apply, follow the Grant Application menu item.
