The Ireland Fund of Canada, part of the largest worldwide network of people of Irish ancestry and friends of Ireland, is dedicated to raising funds to support programs of peace and reconciliation, arts and culture, education and community development, in all of Ireland and in Canada.
About Our Charity
The Canadian Ireland fund was established in 1978 by Hilary Weston.
The Ireland Funds worldwide have raised over $500 million dollars to fund projects in Ireland and in the countries where the funds were raised. Here in Canada, the Ireland Fund over the past 10 years has contributed around $2.5 million to projects in Ireland and in Canada. Our work in Ireland along with that of our fellow funds around the world has had a profound impact on Ireland. Our combined efforts with integrated schooling in Northern Ireland, bringing kids from across the religious divide in Northern Ireland to camp here in Canada along with numerous other initiatives have had a direct impact on creating conditions for peace and reconciliation in Ireland. Everyone who has ever attended an Ireland Fund event or purchased a ticket should feel very proud of the work we have done.
