The fund is being managed by the Irish Red Cross in collaboration with An Post and Applegreen.
All donations will go to support those who have been bereaved, injured, made homeless or left without an income by Friday's explosion.
People can donate online or at any post office nationwide. Applegreen has made an initial donation of €50,000.
