Welcome to Ireland


THANK YOU

Wishing you and yours a Happy New Year.

We can’t celebrate in person, so for now here is a short video with messages from fellow supporters and highlights from some of the extraordinary organisations we’ve worked with.


MAKE A GIFT

In a year when the words unprecedented and uncertain became the norm, we are proud to report that our grant making activities remained certain, and exceptional.

So far this year, we have made over €12 million in grants across this island to 180 grantees, provided scholarships to 133 students, and our fourth round of COVID-19 Response Fund grants are now being distributed.

The power of our response was fuelled by our supporters locally and globally, and we are immensely grateful.

We can’t yet meet in person so please help us continue our mission.
