DIT Foundation is a registered charity (CHY 14226) established to support DIT in its mission as a comprehensive higher education institution. The Foundation encourages philanthropic support for DIT from graduates, staff, donors and friends. Philanthropy has a key role to play in leveraging funds and enhancing the resources that can be offered to future generations of students.
The main goal of the Foundation is to raise enough money to amalgamate all DIT colleges at one central campus at Grange Gorman in Dublin’s North Inner City.
