Committed to serving the community

The Honourable The Irish Society is a grant-giving body working for the benefit of County Londonderry.

Charitable grants

The Society evolved into a self-funding, cross-community charitable organisation many years ago and continues to work today for the benefit of the community in County Londonderry.

We welcome applications from individuals and local organisations – from amateur sports and senior citizens clubs; youth groups; community, residents, workers and health associations to schools and other educational bodies – across the entire County.  And, for a limited period, in association with The Clothworkers' Company we can offer grants to charities anywhere in Northern Ireland - see the overview page for conditions.

Funding Programmes

Grants are currently limited to £750 max for a group; a 5 year rule applies to repeat applications. Further guidelines and examples can be found on our website.  Applications are considered by a Local Advisory Committee meeting 3 times a year, currently in February, June and October. Closing dates for each meeting are normally 5th January, 5th May and 5th September.

In addition we now have a limited amount of funding available for NI charitable projects outside of County Londonderry: £2,000 max size of grant.
