Exceptional Circumstances Fund

Between 2020 and 2022, thanks to the generosity of donors to the Student Support Fund, TU Dublin Foundation awarded grants to 12 deserving projects. Funding decisions were made by a panel chaired by the Registrar and Deputy President, Dr. Mary Meaney. These initiatives responded to the social, emotional, financial and educational needs of students and challenges of the Covid 19 pandemic. Read about the Student Support Fund Projects.

Thank you to all those who contributed the fund. 

In summer 2022, with the lifting of restrictions and a return to in-person tuition, we were delighted to redirect the Student Support Fund into what will now become the Exceptional Circumstances Fund.  This Fund will help TU Dublin students who cannot access traditional funding, providing assistance directly to those experiencing extreme and immediate financial difficulty.  

Payroll Giving

We are delighted to now offer Payroll Giving, meaning TU Dublin staff members can have a contribution deducted directly from their salary. Find out how to set up your monthly contribution.

Can You Help Us?

You can make an online donation now or if you wish to make a more regular donation you can set up a standing order through your bank. View information on how to set up a standing order.

Tax Efficient Donations

TU Dublin Foundation is an eligible charity and can reclaim the tax paid on donations of €250 or above in a tax year, giving even greater impact on what you give. Just €21 a month could result in a total donation of €424 for the 2023 Student Support Appeal, with tax relief added after twelve months.

Every euro raised will count and every euro will go towards supporting our students. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any queries:
