It was a clear and meaningful demonstration of the goodwill that exists around the world for Ireland. It also shows what a network like the Funds can achieve when they set an ambitious goal and successfully mobilize their members to contribute. Here in Australia we have drawn on the example of the campaign to show our current and prospective donors and members that the Fund is a truly unique organization both in its global nature and in the range and inuence of the people who are involved. Over the period of the Campaign our overall donations have increased by 617. The Campaign was also a way for friends of Ireland in Australia to meaningfully and directly contribute to the Irish economic recovery. We knew that our donations joined with so many others around the world would have a signicant impact and would go to help those in Ireland who were the most disadvantaged and the most at risk from the economic crisis. The fact that we can report to our members and donors that over 800 charities in Ireland have been assisted as part of that Campaign really demonstrates the truth of that old Irish seanfhocailn neart go cur le chilethere is no strength without unity. The Australian Ireland Fund together with our friends in chapters across the world con- tributed to one of the biggest and most signicant philanthropic endeavours that Ireland has ever seen. Its something for us and for The Worldwide Ireland Funds family to be very proud of. John ONeill Chairman Yvonne Le Bas Treasurer The Australian Ireland Fund A N I N T E R N A T I O N A L P E R S P E C T I V E One of the most important aspects of this conservation treatment is the support of The Ireland Funds and Bank of America. Without that support I dont think we would have been able to approach it in quite the same way and it would have taken much longer. Sean Rainbird Director of the National Gallery of Ireland Thanks to The Ireland Funds we have continued our programs for children and even improved them. Weve been able to oer more work- shops as a direct result from the grant we received. It has made all the dierence. Bairbre Ann Harkin Education Curator at the Butler Gallery The support of The Ireland Funds is philosophical. It is an absolute energetic support that stands for the creative life for children and their potential. It is the act of coming alongside and standing with us. We are constantly reinterpreting culture and The Ireland Funds are part of that journey. Eina McHugh The Ark
