2017 Annual Patron Support Campaign

Dear Irish Cultural Center Patron,

If you have already renewed your support for next year – thank you! This is a time of great opportunity, progress and growth for the Irish Cultural Center of Western New England. Over this past year and into next year, we are vigorously implementing elements of our strategic plan for growth and development. We have worked steadfastly at our new location at 429 Morgan Road in West Springfield. We are making significant progress in our efforts to renovate and restore the facility. The ICC’s administrative offices are now located at our new home; we expect other elements to open in 2017.

The 10-acre facility in West Springfield will enable the ICC to establish a new place in which to gather. 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.

We sincerely appreciate your past and future support, and thank you for your continued allegiance to the Irish Cultural Center. Our 2017 Annual Support Campaign has now begun! As a non-profit charitable organization, your support is vital! Your commitment allows the ICC to manage operating expenses, develop new programs, exhibit our collection of cultural artifacts, and continue to provide high quality events and travel opportunities for the Irish community.

To coincide with our move and the new opportunities that come with it, the ICC’s Board of Directors has revised our annual support program for the 2017 calendar year. The revision better reflects how our support base financially contributes to the vitality of the ICC. The ICC is a non-profit organization that has been recognized by the IRS as tax exempt, under Section 501(c)(3). All donations are tax exempt. The distinguishing characteristics of the ICC are its emphasis on cultural and educational programming. The ICC also serves as a bridge between the Irish government, the citizens of Ireland and the Western New England region.

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. We look forward to a visit from you at our new home; we will give you a guided tour of the facility and explain what we are up to.

Please renew your support today. Learn more about Patron benefits, download our Patron brochure, or submit your donation online. Stay up to date with our latest news on Facebook.

Thank you. Regards,
