We're changing lives of the most vulnerable Irish children.

Making a difference in Ireland since 2013.

What We Do

100minds connects 3rd level students with a worthy cause and encourages them to run fundraising projects that will help develop their skill set and apply their theoretical learning’s from college in a practical manner.

Each student is assigned a mentor to support them throughout their fundraising efforts for Children’s Health Foundation. Our mentors are a group of recent graduates working in some of Ireland’s top companies. Over the years we have been fortunate to have amazing mentors from a range of high profile organisations including LinkedIn, Facebook, Google, KPMG, Bank of Ireland, Arthur Cox and Accenture.

How It Works

100minds connects 3rd level students with Children’s Health Foundation


We recruit 100 proactive college students from across the country and challenge them to raise €1,000 each in a creative and entrepreneurial way in 100 days.


Every participant who joins 100minds is partnered with a mentor. The role of the mentor is to motivate the participant in achieving their fundraising goal. 


Each participant is given an online profile page on the 100minds website. It acts as a fundraising hub and a means to track their progress.


100minds and the journey so far.

100minds is a unique fundraising challenge for third-level students – bringing together an ambitious group of third-level students and pairing them with a graduate mentor to raise €1000 in just 100 days for sick children in CHI hospitals and urgent care centres.

The project was founded in 2013 by Declan Egan and aims to make a real difference for sick children, while giving students the opportunity to develop their professional and project management skills. Through 100minds, participants have the chance to network, build their CV and grow their confidence.

Since its inception, 100minds has raised over €1.4million for Irish children’s charities – including funding a new isolation dialysis room and classroom in St. Gabriel’s Ward, CHI at Temple Street. In 2016, 100minds moved into Temple Street Foundation (now Children’s Health Foundation) and today, the project raises vital funds to support sick children and their families across CHI hospitals and urgent care centres.
