Focus Areas

With our global network of donors, The Ireland Funds provide a range of financial and non-financial support for not-for-profit organizations across the island of Ireland and for Irish causes around the world.

The Ireland Funds are one of the largest private funding sources for not-for-profit charitable causes in Ireland.

We focus on four key areas:

Education

The Ireland Funds invest in high-quality education by supporting programs that widen access to and participation in third-level education for under-represented groups; provide access to integrated education in Northern Ireland; support innovation and groundbreaking research in third-level institutions throughout the island of Ireland; and extend a broad range of learning opportunities for students of all ages.

Peace and Reconciliation

The Ireland Funds address sectarianism and violence in Northern Ireland by supporting initiatives that address the lack of understanding and respect for varying cultural and religious values; a stagnant economy that has inflicted long-term unemployment; and inadequate opportunities in education, employment and personal development.
