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 CHI at Temple Street. 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 Temple Street


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.

History of 100 minds

100minds and the journey so far.

100minds is a social enterprise project founded in 2013, by Declan Egan. 100minds brings together some of Ireland’s top college students and connects them with one cause to achieve big goals in a short space of time.

The project was founded on three core principles: Impact, Inspire and Educate. Its objectives are to provide large financial aide for organisations (Impact) who care and support for vulnerable Irish children (Inspire) whilst also assisting college students in gaining access to young professionals for mentorship, CV support and to encourage the development of their own project management skills through the end to end management of their own fundraising project (Educate).

Since 2013, 100minds has raised over €1.2million for Irish children’s charities. In June 2016, the ownership of the brand and associated website was given to the Temple Street Foundation by Declan. 100minds is now an annual fundraiser for CHI at Temple Street and raises vital funds for our hospital. Temple Street Foundation really looks forward to working with 100minds students, mentors and partners each year.
