Children’s Promise Grants Programme 2024 Now Open for Applications

The ‘Children’s Promise’ Grants Programme, Katharine Howard Foundation (KHF), is a collaboration with Community Foundation Ireland (CFI), and aims to support organisations working with young children and their families in disadvantaged areas, who may not reach their potential due to the corrosive impact of poverty. All children are born with the potential to thrive and the ‘Children’s Promise’ Grants Programme aims to support community-based organisations working to protect that potential and to support the wellbeing of their families.

The ‘Children’s Promise’ Grants Programme is a promise from KHF to provide financial and other supports to selected organisations, to support and develop the potential of the children engaged with the organisations.
The Programme aims to build on the powerful work taking place at community-level to address child poverty with a grants programme of €1,000,000 in financial and non-financial supports over the duration of the programme 2023-27.

In 2023, they received 172 applications and following a rigorous selection process, 17 organisations were selected for support through financial and non-financial supports. These organisations work with a wide range of complex issues, but all have a common objective: to harness the childhood potential in particularly vulnerable communities, through supports for pregnant mothers, young children and their families. 

The closing date for all applications is 21 March 2024 at 1pm
