Grants and Donations
Every year we donate grants to charities, cultural organizations and individuals, from funds generated through donations and bequests we receive, and from fundraising and investment income from the Society’s funds and investments.
Through the Charitable Grants Committee, the Society donates grants to many local charities and organizations active in caring for the sick, the elderly, women’s and children’s organizations and others in need. Although in the early days of the society we did assist individuals and families with direct assistance, nowadays we do not grant charitable grants to individuals.

The Society supports organizations and individuals involved in arts, cultural and heritage activities or events that have an Irish connection. For more information, please contact: email@example.com
