As you may be aware, the Irish Red Cross made a submission to government under their Covid-19 Stability Scheme, which was set up to financially assist organisations who were negatively impacted financially by the pandemic but who were still expected to perform their duties and services.
The list of successful applicants in Phase One was announced on Friday afternoon and the Irish Red Cross was one of 179 organisations who will benefit from this funding.
The awards made were between €2,000 and €200,000 and I am delighted that the IRC is one of thirteen organisations to have been granted the maximum award in Phase 1 of €200,000. I am grateful for the work undertaken on the application by everyone involved but special thanks to our Head of Fundraising, Jocelino, who co-ordinated our application.
Your gift will save lives
