For the third year running, Ecclesiastical is giving away over €1million (or £1million) to charities through its Movement for Good awards.
Through the second phase of giving, 30 charities will be chosen by a panel of judges to receive €10,000 to be put towards the advancement of heritage and arts, education, rural and community, climate, human rights and equality.
Two charities will benefit from an additional €50,000 each and another will receive an additional €100,000 award.
Charities in Tipperary, across the island of Ireland and the UK are invited to submit their applications before Friday August 6.
Applications will be assessed against four key areas: impact and effectiveness, sustainability, innovation, and care and compassion.
Designed to give eligible charities the financial assistance they need to make a real difference, the funding can be used within three years and for a blend of project and core funding costs.
