Become a Governor of the Fund
The Governor’s programme was launched in 1997 to support major initiatives and flagship projects of the Fund. Supporters are invited to make a tax deductible annual gift of $10,000 a year for five years to the Fund.
Become a Partner Sponsor
Your company can become a Partner Sponsor of The Australian Ireland Fund by contributing a nominated amount for a 3-year period starting 2016. This would allow us meet some or all overheads and underwrite the cost of day-to-day operations freeing us to focus on fundraising for the recommended and worthy projects we would like to support.
Become a Benefactor of the Fund
The Benefactor Programme is at a more affordable level. Supporters are invited to become Benefactors of the Fund, upon payment of an annual tax deductible contribution of $1,000.
Event Sponsor
We are very lucky to have many companies donate items to us for our Live and Silent Auctions at our 3 major fundraisers in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane throughout the year. If you can help we would love to hear from you.
For more Information on any of the above activities please contact Teresa Keating, Executive Director:
Become a Young Leader
The Young Leaders’ Network is a key Ireland Funds Programme attracting the next generation of leaders. The mission of the Young Leaders’ network is to encourage the involvement of an emerging generation of philanthropists, and to provide a forum for networking locally and globally, while financially supporting the work of The Worldwide Ireland Funds. We have Young Leader Networks in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. Young Leaders membership is open to those aged between 20-40 and costs $200 annually.
Donor Advised Grants
Donor Advised Grants enable donors to recommend projects they are passionate about and that they wish to support. This is a wonderful way for the Fund to work with donors to make a difference and to, where possible, ultimately match them with specific projects.
