Promising Ireland Campaign
In response to the severe downtu in the Irish economy, The Worldwide Ireland Funds launched the Promising Ireland Campaign in 2009 to raise $100 million for charities experiencing an increased demand for their services at a time of a major reduction in resources. Thanks to the extraordinary generosity of donors, the initial goal has been exceeded and the target has been doubled to now raise $200 million. As a result, one third of the Funds' total eaings since foundation have been raised during the five years of the Campaign. Over 650 outstanding projects and organizations have received support from the Promising Ireland Campaign.

The American Ireland Fund holds a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator in recognition of efficiency, sound fiscal management and commitment to accountability and transparency.
