Philanthropy Ireland / The Funding Network

The Matheson Foundation is a member of Philanthropy Ireland, the association of independent philanthropic organisations in Ireland. It aims to increase the level of philanthropy in Ireland and to expand the community of engaged donors who are regular, strategic, long-term contributors to good causes.

In November 2014, Matheson hosted the first Funding Network philanthropic event to take place in Ireland.  “The Funding Network Dublin” showcased four charities to an invited audience of potential donors to raise funds for specific projects. Further information about the event can be found in the news section.

The Funding Network (TFN), founded in 2002, enables individuals to join together to crowd fund social change projects. They are the UK’s 1st public open giving circle and have been described as the ‘Dragons’ Den’ for charities. Further information available at
