Grants

Each year, Kenya Irish Society makes an effort to raise funds through sponsorship, ticket sales and raffle tickets at the various events. As a result of a very successful fundraising effort and generous participants at our events, the Society was able to award grants to a total value of 2 Million Kenyan Shillings. Charities and CBOs connected with the Society through various members are invited to submit proposals for a maximum grant of 200,000 KSh. The grant applications are screened by a grant sub-committee and a decision is taken with regard to the most deserving recipients. In 2015, 16 groups received funds as follows:
