Muckross Park Past Pupils’ Union
Benevolent Fund

The Muckross Park Past Pupils' Union Benevolent Fund was set-up during the tenure of the 1977/79 committee with the primary objective of helping past pupils who find themselves in financial difficulty, whatever the reason.

Over the years the Fund has been used to support past pupils who have been impacted by serious illness, disability, bereavement, and unemployment. The Fund has also supported the education of students in need and other charitable causes deemed appropriate at the discretion of the Committee.

The Past Pupils’ Union continues to reach out to those who are in need and who can most benefit from a contribution from the Benevolent Fund.  The Fund is financed by past pupils for past pupils by way of the PPU annual raffle and also through private donations.

How to apply

If you know of a past pupil who is experiencing financial difficulties for any reason, you can contact the Past Pupils’ Union via

All requests are treated respecting the confidentiality of both the Requestor and the Beneficiaries. Prior to any funds being approved, all requests are validated to ensure they are genuine, to protect the Fund. Requests will be supported while monies are available in the dedicated Fund account.
