In place since 2008, the GAA charity partner process has now delivered almost €1.5m to over 50 charities. This year the GAA will select from the countless worthy causes and organisations working charitably in our communities, who will each receive a monetary donation, as well as help raising the profile of the excellent work each are involved in.
As the country’s leading 32-county sporting/community organisation, each year the GAA receives a large volume of requests to work in partnership with charities and other worthy causes.
To maximise our potential as a supporting partner, the Association will select four official charities for 2024. Each chosen charity will receive a €25,000 donation. In recent years, the work of the official GAA charities has also been promoted on national match days such as All Ireland quarter-finals and semi-finals in Croke Park.
Any good partnership depends on shared understanding, values, and goals. This official GAA charity application is designed to assist us in better understanding why a charity is seeking to partner with the Association and what values and goals we share. It also seeks to ascertain basic information about how a partnership might benefit the charity’s target audience and the GAA membership, while also offering an opportunity to highlight how you see the Association supporting your activities, and vice versa.
Shortlisted candidates will be asked to provide the GAA with a copy of their audited accounts from the previous year. Successful charities are announced in the weeks following GAA Annual Congress, which is usually held the last weekend of February each year.
If you wish to apply to become an official charity for the coming year, please complete the application form below no later than close of business on 31st January 2024. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for any queries.
*Please note only registered charities will be considered
