The Foundation This Week


We have truly had a great first half to 2015 here at The Community Foundation for Ireland. From launching our Entrepreneurs Report earlier this year to welcoming lots of new funds, I am delighted to say philanthropy is alive and well in Ireland. The next half of the year also promises to be an exciting time. In our continued commitment to being top class in our transparency and governance, we will be launching our Annual Report in July where we publish every grant awarded as well as stories about the impacts our donors make. I look forward to keeping you posted on new developments here at the Foundation. Regards, Tina.
