On the eve of the Irish Government’s Global Economic Forum Meeting, key
Ireland Fund supporters gathered to discuss how the Funds could best
contribute to the gathering. The Worldwide Ireland Funds had one of the
largest representations at this important event which invites the
diaspora to contribute to Ireland’s economic and social recovery.
Directors and donors from the United States, New Zealand, Canada, China
and of course Ireland discussed how the Funds could help stimulate
giving in Ireland, based upon their work across the world, and how the
work of its grantees can highlight the importance of philanthropy.
There was great support in particular for The Ireland Funds’ gift to the
Benefacts project which will greatly enhance the transparency of the
not for profit sector in Ireland.
