The Sunshine Fund

The Sunshine Fund is a unique branch of the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul which provides week-long Summer holidays for children, aged 7 to 11, from disadvantaged parts of Dublin, Meath, Wicklow and Kildare.

The Sunshine Fund owns a purpose-built holiday home just up from the beach in Balbriggan, North Dublin, where it has been running these holidays since 1935. Over 100,000 young people have passed through our doors since we opened.

Between January and April the fund organises fundraising, recruitment of volunteers and ordering of supplies – which include clothes, shoes and toiletries.

Each week from May to August, 130 children are provided with food, board, 10 spending money, the chance to meet new friends and full-time, positive adult attention. It is all free to the families.
