Annual Patron Support

To coincide with our move and the new opportunities that come with it, we have revised our annual support program for the 2017 calendar year. Please review our benefits and support levels.

The Irish Cultural Center of Western New England is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization that emphasizes cultural and educational programming. We invite you to become a Patron of the Irish Cultural Center. Your support as a donor is not just a membership – you are a Patron, a person who has made a commitment to preserve, promote and cherish Irish culture and heritage.

This is a time of great opportunity, progress and growth for the ICC. We have moved to our new home at 429 Morgan Road in West Springfield, MA. The large multi-level building is located in a pastoral setting on 10 acres of land. The facility enables the ICC to establish a place to gather, providing an even broader range of cultural offerings. When completed, our new home will include a library and museum, a performance center with banquet capabilities, a traditional Irish restaurant and pub, onsite parking, athletic playing fields and a nature trail. Construction of these spaces will continue in stages over the next year.
