The Irish FA Foundation is a charitable foundation that was set up in 2016. It funds the charitable work of the Irish Football Association throughout Northern Ireland.
The Irish FA Strategy states the desire to reach beyond the game and build a culture of lifelong participation in football. The Irish FA Foundation has four main aims
- Develop amateur football, youth football, schools football and futsal.
- Advance education by providing work experience and support to educational establishments and extra-curricular groups
- To provide funds and football facilities in areas in areas of economic need with the object of improving circumstances
- To improve the health and wellbeing of people in Northern Ireland through football
An initial board of two trustees has been established and the Foundation is keen to build up its capacity to provide more on-going and in-depth support for foundation programmes. It is currently looking to recruit additional trustees to join the board to improve its knowledge and focus on all areas of activities, as well as contributing more generally across all of the Foundation’s activities.
