Welcome to The Singapore Ireland Fund

That network now extends to 40 cities across 12 countries (including China and Japan). The Chairman is Dr. Stanley Quek, a former Honorary Consul General of Ireland in Singapore.

The Singapore Ireland Fund is a registered charity effective July 31st 2009 and has the Institution of Public Character (IPC) status. 

“The Singapore Ireland Fund illustrates the long and historical relationship that exists between Singapore and Ireland”. - Dr Stanley Quek, Chairman of The Singapore Ireland Fund


The Singapore Ireland Fund is dedicated to facilitating and helping to fund projects that will further develop and deepen the Singapore Ireland relationship and deliver long-term benefits to the people of Singapore from their long established relationship with Ireland. The scope of these projects and development sectors include community relations, education, the arts, culture and sport.
