The American Ireland Fund is a philanthropic network that supports worthy causes in Ireland promoting programs of peace and reconciliation, arts and culture, education and community development throughout the island of Ireland. Founded in 1976, The Worldwide Ireland Funds currently operate in 12 countries and have raised over $430 million for more than 1,200 outstanding organizations.
In response to the severe downturn in the Irish economy, The Worldwide Ireland Funds launched the Promising Ireland Campaign in 2009 to raise funds over a five-year period to support charities that are experiencing an increased demand for their services at a time of a major reduction in resources. The initial campaign goal of raising $100 million was revised to $140 million when the initial goal was exceeded 19 months before the campaign’s end. The campaign’s title, “Promising Ireland”, reflects the Funds’ pledge to these groups as well as their belief in Ireland’s future. So far, over 350 outstanding projects and organizations have received support from the Promising Ireland Campaign.
