The Ireland Funds Great Britain has launched a new initiative to grow the funds directed towards its Annual Grant Round. Following a soft launch in November 2019, the 100 Club aims to recruit 100 members each donating £100 a month over a three year period.
The 100 Club is the perfect entry point for supporters interested in funding the work of The Ireland Funds Great Britain and directly supporting charities working within the Irish community in Great Britain and across the island of Ireland.
100% of the membership subscription is directed towards IFGB’s Annual Grant Round which this year will provide much needed funding to community and cultural organisations in Great Britain and on the island of Ireland struggling in the face of COVID-19.
In addition to meeting the need to grow the Annual Grant Round, membership of the 100 Club offers members new networking opportunities. In February 2020, early members of the 100 Club were thanked with an invitation to a dinner at the Embassy of Ireland in London, hosted by the Ambassador of Ireland to Great Britain, His Excellency Adrian O’Neill.
When we are able to meet again in person, we hope to provide both opportunities to meet some of the charities supported by the Grant Round, and arrange more events to bring members together.
