Monastery at Kylemore Brochure

When made before the end of 2023, your gift to The Ireland Funds America in response to our Kylemore Abbey appeal will be matched in its entirety by a Matching Gift Challenge up to $1,000,000. This extraordinary giving opportunity will potentially result in $2,000,000 to support Kylemore Abbey and its work in Ireland.

All gifts will be designated in support of the current capital campaign which will create a new living accommodation for the growing Benedictine community, library, meeting spaces, chapel and a residential spiritual retreat center. Your gift today will ensure the preservation of Irish culture on the Abbey grounds as well as supporting the economic community of Connemara.

Simply make your gift payable to The Ireland Funds America to receive a U.S. tax receipt. 100% of the proceeds, with no deductions, will support the work of Kylemore Abbey.
