HONORING

Stephen A. Greeley

Retired New England Director, The Ireland Funds America

Steve’s leadership, enthusiasm and commitment have been instrumental to the success of The Ireland Funds throughout New England. We look forward to recognizing and thanking Steve for his many contributions.

CELEBRATING THE LEGACIES OF JOE CORCORAN & JACK DUNFEY

We will also remember and pay tribute to two of Ireland’s greatest friends, The Ireland Funds America Board Directors Joe Corcoran and Jack Dunfey, whose leadership and generosity bettered the lives of thousands of people across New England and Ireland.


Join us on December 1, 2020

For almost 40 years, the Boston Gala has been a proud cornerstone of The Ireland Funds’ fundraising efforts and the engine behind our grantmaking. Year after year, the generosity and dedication of our Boston supporters is what makes our work possible and The Ireland Funds special. We hope you will join us on December 1st as we pay tribute to Steve Greeley and enjoy an entertaining Irish program featuring musical performances, special guest appearances and messages of thanks from our projects providing key services on the frontlines across Ireland.

The Challenge

Despite the challenges posed by COVID-19, The Ireland Funds has remained true to its mission in delivering philanthropic support to communities in crisis.

As the pandemic took hold in Ireland this spring, our COVID-19 Response Fund made quick and impactful grants to frontline organizations in the areas of food poverty, domestic violence & child abuse, elderly services, disability support, access to education and mental health.

The Response

Thanks to the response of our donors, we have been able to intervene on the frontlines by supporting projects that are ensuring the delivery of key services to thousands of people across Ireland and Northern Ireland.

Your support for The Ireland Funds will continue this work as we serve thousands of people across the island of Ireland. Thank you for standing with The Ireland Funds and Ireland during this challenging time.
