We receive no government funding.
All our funds are raised through donations from people like you. Philanthropic individuals and companies who want to reverse the social and personal damage caused by poverty, educational disadvantage, homelessness and social exclusion, and are committed to working towards a fairer, more inclusive Ireland.
I’ve seen how hard it is for some vulnerable kids.
They need support and activities in their life to give them belief and focus. They need facilities and stability and guidance.
Then they can be the best they can be.
The Irish Youth Foundation funds amazing projects and programmes. And that’s why I’m urging you to put your money where your heart is.

Meet the team
In 2020, we raised and distributed an additional €500k which benefitted 14,123 children and young people. But we could only meet 6.6% of the staggering €7.5 million requested.
Futures are on the line. We need to do more. YOU can make a massive difference.
