Help to build a strong Older Persons’ Fund for the future by:
- Supporting the long-term endowed fund
In contributing to the long term Older Persons’ Fund you will be investing in a permanent and sustainable fund, which will also be flexible in meeting the changing needs of older people in Ireland over time. The Fund will provide a guaranteed means to support projects in the years ahead – in good times and bad. The Older Persons’ Fund has been set up with an initial investment of €3m provided by us (€1m) and The Atlantic Philanthropies (€2m). We have set a target of growing the Fund by an additional €1m by 2018 – we need your help to reach this target.
- Leaving a legacy to the Older Persons’ Fund
By including The Older Persons’ Fund in your will, you will be helping to establish a permanent charitable fund to support older people in Ireland today and in the future. The Older Persons’ Fund is administered by us, an expert grant-making charitable foundation. Read more by visiting the Legacies and Wills section.
- Establishing a Memorial Fund
As part of the Older Persons’ Fund, you may like to establish an ‘In Memoriam Fund’ in the name of a loved one who has passed away. This can be a powerful way of supporting great projects and ensuring that a person’s name lives on in a profound and meaningful way, helping to improve the lives of older people, now and in the future.
- Championing the fund in your network or community/ voluntary group
As a community leader in the community and voluntary sector organisations which support older people in Ireland, you can play a really influential role in making your network or organisation aware of the Fund and opportunities to donate. We would be delighted if you would create a link between your website and The Older Persons’ Fund and make your stakeholders aware of the opportunity to include the Fund in their legacy.
- Making a once off donation or annual commitment to support the fund
While the endowment (long-term fund) is growing, this will help ensure that as many projects as possible are supported in the short term.
- Becoming a corporate partner with The Older Persons’ Fund
The Older Persons’ Fund provides an opportunity to companies that wish to make a real difference to the lives of older people in Ireland.
