We Support Charities
Northside Irish Culture & Arts, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) organization founded to preserve and promote Irish Culture & Arts, as well as Language, History, Traditions, and Sports in the Northern Metro-Atlanta area, and to build and preserve the local Irish community there. To that end we fundraise to put on The Northside Saint Patrick’s Parade and Festival at no charge as a community event, and to contribute a portion of any excess funds to a cause that is closely associated with the history of Ireland and it’s people – hunger.
“An Gorta Mor,” translated as “The Great Hunger,” also known as “The Great Famine,” was a tragic period in Irish history which saw the population of the Island decrease by 20-25% through death and emigration. Only as recent as 2022 has the population of the Republic of Ireland returned to the level prior to this terrible time. As such any charitable donations will be made to relieve hunger through the efforts of national and local organizations including the Hibernian Hunger Project of the Ancient Order of Hibernians, Solidarity Sandy Springs, and other groups in the Northern Metro-Atlanta area as determined by our Board of Directors.
