Let’s work together to create more opportunity in Ireland

The Impact Challenge Dublin rallies the county around bold ideas to make our city even better.

A panel of advisors helped us select 15 nonprofits with innovative ideas for growing economic & social opportunity in Ireland, and each will receive €50,000 in grant funding and Google training.

The public has now voted for the cause they believe has the most promise, and the People's Choice winner will receive an additional €50,000.

Meet the winners

Each of our winners receives a share of €1 million in grant funding as they continue to help build opportunity in Dublin.
