2017 Annual Appeal

2017 Annual Appeal 2017-11-22T14:31:43+00:00

Thank you for your support of the annual appeal for the Irish American Heritage Center.  Your generosity makes a substantial difference to the Irish American Heritage Center and when your donation is blended with the philanthropy of the Burkes, your gift of $25 will become $50 and a gift of $50 will become $100. Your donation of any size will be matched.  There are several donor levels to choose:

  • President’s Club • ($5,000 and up)
  • Director’s Circle • ($2,500 – $4,999)
  • Center Champion • ($1,000 – $4,999)
  • Benefactor • ($500 – $999)
  • Patron • ($250 – $499)
  • Advocate • ($100 – $249)
  • Friend • (up to $99)

This year has been extraordinary for our Irish American Heritage Center. Our gifted staff, Board of directors and countless volunteers have done an incredible job of expanding our cultural programs while strengthening our financial performance, community outreach and fundraising efforts. We anticipate continuing these efforts and to accomplish some significant capital improvements that have been in the plans for a long time. The highlight of the year may have been the Irish American Hall of Fame dinner where entertainer, Bill Murray, was honored and Chicago Cubs owner, Tom Ricketts, presented the prestigious award.

The IAHC annual report was sent to all our members and friends and we hope you had time to note all the accomplishments and achievements of the last year. These improvements are possible because of the generosity of people like yourself.  If you did not receive an annual report, please call our office and one will be mailed to you.

Thank you for your dedication to our organization, the mission and all the people we serve.
