Make a Donation
Make a donation to the Irish Heart Foundation to support our work of reducing premature death and disability from heart disease and stroke.
Make a donation in memory of a loved one that has passed away. We will make sure the bereaved family is notified that a donation has been made in honour of their loved one.
Make a donation to honour someone special in your life. It can be in lieu of flowers, wedding favours, birthday gifts, anniversaries etc. We will write to the person you nominate to let them know a donation has been made in honour of them.
Set up your own personal fundraising webspace and email the link to all of your friends so that they can support your event.
Premature death from Heart Disease is too high in Ireland – one of the highest in Europe. The causes begin in childhood and early adult life and include poor diet, physical inactivity and smoking. We also know that changing these factors can prevent heart disease. The best approach to tackling heart disease is through persuading our children to adopt healthier lifestyles. T
he Irish Heart Foundation is promoting these changes with the full support of the medical profession. All those nationally with expertise on heart health, participate on Irish Heart Foundation medical councils and contribute their knowledge to enhance the service we provide for the Irish public. Our strategic plan emphasises the need to advocate changes in health policies where appropriate and to act as champion for the disadvantaged. The medical councils advise our Board of Directors of the need to lobby on priority issues.
The Foundation has a clear vision on how to tackle the very high levels of death and disability from cardiovascular disease. To effectively implement these changes we need the support of Irish business and would be delighted if you would support us.
Leaving a gift to the Irish Heart Foundation gives the chance of a better quality of life to thousands of people and you don’t need to give a large sum to know you have helped. We rely heavily on legacies, especially since they enable us to plan long-term funding for medical research. Many of these projects result in improved treatment for heart disease, which is why legacies are so greatly appreciated.
