Irish Americans Launch Irish COVID19 Relief Fund
Irish American website "Irish Central" have formed a relief fund for needy Irish people.
Make a gift to The IrishCentral COVID-19 Relief Fund, in association with The Ireland Funds, and your support will go to selected projects that are already at work, delivering food, enabling remote education for disadvantaged children, helping homeless families, and caring for our seniors.
All these organizations are now struggling to meet the demands of the communities they serve as we all battle COVID-19.
100% of your gift will go in the form of immediate grants made by The Ireland Funds America directly to meet the greatest needs across all of Ireland, north, and south.
Charities who will benefit from this fund include Barnardos, DePaul Ireland, FoodCloud, Good Shepherd Cork, Making Connections, COPE Galway, The Early Learning Initiative (ELI) of the National College of Ireland, 174 Trust in Belfast, MyMind, and SAFE Ireland.
At this time of such critical need, IrishCentral is pleased to be turning to its extensive network of concerned and engaged members of the Irish community. Our goal is to assist The Ireland Funds America in generating funds and distributing support where it will be most efficiently utilized on an immediate basis.
