In existence since 1989, the Greater Columbus Irish Cultural Foundation (GCICF) has supported organizations that have afforded the Greater Columbus community enrichment opportunities to showcase Irish culture.

In order to meet our mission to provide funding and support that will advance awareness of the rich tapestry of Irish art, literature, history and traditions that comprise Ireland’s contributions, both locally and globally, we rely on the generosity of individuals for support. A few of the events and programs that we have monetarily supported over the years include:

  • The Irish Way and Irish Life Experience Programs
  • St. Patrick’s Day Parade
  • Columbus Celtic Dancers
  • Clann~na~nGael SummerFeis
  • Irish Family Stories Project
  • Irish Theatre Group

  • Ohio Statehouse Annual Christmas Dinner
  • Shamrock Club Pipes and Drums

Without the assistance of community-minded individuals like you, we wouldn’t be able to provide the support for the events and programs listed above.
