Ba chóir dóibh níos mó airgead chun daoine bochta a tabharfaidh.
Ba chóir dóibh gach uile fhuinneog sa teach a dhúnadh.
Ba chóir dóibh na daoine tinn a cabhrú ar fud an domhain.
Ba chóir dóibh sin a dhéanamh chun an bhfadhb a réiteach.

Are these sentences correct? I tried following the same pattern with each. Maybe there is another way to structure the sentence which i don’t know of. I would really appreciate it if someone could tell me. thanks.

First sentence
Verbal noun of tabhair is tabhairt
Particle a (“to”) requires lenition (a thabhairt)
The word order is direct object + a + verbal noun.  Anything else follows
The idiom is tabhair do (not chun) = give to
Níos mó requires genitive: níos mó airgid


So: Ba chóir dóibh níos mó airgid a thabhairt do dhaoine bochta


2nd sentence
Ba chóir dóibh gach uile fhuinneog a dhúnadh sa teach .


3rd sentence
Again lenition: a chabhrú.
Ba chóir dóibh na daoine tinn a chabhrú ar fud an domhain.


4th sentence
No eclipsis following chun an.
Usually genitive is required following chun, (chun na faidhbe = to the problem), but
not so in verbal noun phrases, as chun an fhadhb a réiteach = in order to solve the problem.
So, an fhadhb = the problem is without any change, fadhb is lenited because it is feminine. 
Ba chóir dóibh sin a dhéanamh chun an fhadhb a réiteach.
