ALIVE Civic Engagement Fund
What is the Civic Engagement Fund and how does it work?
The ALIVE Civic Engagement Fund was established in 2007 to support students to develop their own volunteering initiatives. The fund enables students to act on their ideas, interests and passions with community organisations, campaigns and projects. Individuals and groups of students may apply.
In the last year NUI Galway ALIVE volunteers have organised the Health Sciences Ball raising almost €2,000 for Voices for Galway, volunteered with Habitat for Humanity, organised a table quiz for Friends of Londiani and a campaign to sign the Irish flag for a trek to Mount Everest with the HOPE Foundation.
