Applications for the 2019 Charity Impact Awards opened September 2nd 2019

Applications for the 2019 Charity Impact Awards opened on  Monday, 2 September, at 9 am

The aim of the Charity Impact Awards is to celebrate the positive impact charities, community and voluntary organisations and social enterprises are making in people’s lives across the length and breadth of Ireland. 

This is a great opportunity to raise awareness about your organisation and its impact!

We want you to nominate charities, social enterprises and trustees who have inspiring stories to tell. 

You can nominate in the following three categories:

1. Impact Award

This award celebrates the work of organisations that have brought about positive change in their communities.

In this category, there are three sub-categories:

·         Small Organisations (with no paid staff)

·         Medium-sized Organisations (with paid staff  and an annual turnover of up to €1m)

·         Large Organisations (with paid staff and an annual turnover of over €1m).

2. Trustee of the Year Award

This award shines a light on voluntary trustees who have made an extraordinary contribution to an organisation. This is a unique opportunity to thank a trustee who has made a special contribution to your organisation. 

3. Social Enterprises of the Year

This award recognises the impact of social enterprises.

Social enterprises are social-mission focused organisations that engage in trading activity in a way to achieve their social mission or to generate a contribution to the cost of delivering their mission.

Applications in all categories open at 9 am on Monday, 2 September and will remain open for 1 month. Submit your nominations at
