About The American Ireland Fund:
The American Ireland Fund is part of The Worldwide Ireland Funds, a philanthropic network that supports worthy causes promoting programs of peace and reconciliation, arts and culture, education and community development throughout the island of Ireland and around the globe.
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 $100 million by the end of 2013 in support of charities that are experiencing an increased demand for their services at a time of a major reduction in resources.
The initial campaign goal of $100 million was reached 19 months early and the goal was revised to $140 million, requiring the Funds to raise $1 million a month until December 2013.
