Welcome to Great Britain

Registered Charity 327889



Purpose

The Ireland Funds Great Britain raises money to make a real difference to those in need and to support Irish culture in Great Britain and also on the island of Ireland.

Mission

We identify, monitor, fund and mentor charities and non-profits that promote wellbeing, community and culture, including those that best support Irish communities. We work closely with our donors and sponsors to ensure that our support is channelled in an effective and economic manner. We are a chapter of The Ireland Funds. The mission is to harness the power of a global philanthropic network of friends of Ireland to promote and support peace, culture, education and community development across the island of Ireland and among Irish communities around the world.

How we are helping

Since 2007, The Ireland Funds Great Britain has awarded over £1m to organisations throughout the UK.

How we raise funds

The IFGB does not receive or seek government funding; we rely on donations from private individuals, corporations and other non-statutory sources. We host fundraising events, prize draws and auctions. We are grateful to all our Corporate Partners who have given generously. Their contribution ensures that the maximum amount of your donation goes directly to the organisations we support, rather than on administration and fundraising costs

What do we do with the money we raise?

The IFGB invests significant time and resources in identifying, monitoring and mentoring charities and non-profits that promote wellbeing, community and culture across Great Britain, including those that best support Irish communities. Coupled with the corresponding work undertaken by The Ireland Funds in Ireland, we are uniquely placed to ensure that funds raised from our donors are channelled to deserving organisations which will help us meet our aims and which will maximise the benefit obtained from our fundraising. Grants are only distributed following a thorough assessment of all applications by our Grants Assessment Committee.
