A Special Capital Fund in Honor of Barbara Jones
A special $250,000 fund has been set up in honor of Barbara Jones, departing Consul General of New York, to support the New Irish Arts Center. This fund has been seeded with a $25,000 challenge grant from our great friend and supporter Donal O’Sullivan, President and CEO of Navillus Contracting.

We invite our entire community to join in honoring Barbara, who has been promoted to become Ireland's Ambassador of Mexico, by making a gift or a fundraising pledge in any size to be included in this special fund, which will commemorate Barbara as one of the Founders of our new Center.

You can make a donation in the box below. If you would like to make a fundraising pledge or establish your own mini-campaign in Barbara’s honor, please indicate that in the notes or contact Nick Rolf at (212) 757-3318 x 223 or nick.rolf@irishartscenter.org for more information.
