Mission Statement

  • The mission of the Irish Arts Foundation of Kentucky, Inc. is to foster awareness, understanding, and appreciation of our Irish heritage.

Description

The Irish Arts Foundation of Kentucky, Inc. is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting awareness, interest, and appreciation of Ireland’s rich cultural heritage. The IAF has its roots in the vision of charter members Gerald and Martha Ford. Having visited numerous Irish Festivals throughout the United States; Gerry Ford was convinced that such a festival was important to promote the Irish culture and heritage in Louisville. From Gerry’s vision - and with the help of many dedicated volunteers and sponsors - Irish Family Fest was born in 1990. For many years, the "home" of the festival was Bellarmine University.

From these beginnings, The Irish Arts Foundation of Kentucky, Inc. emerged, receiving its tax-exempt 501(c)(3), non-profit status in 1996. The IAF continues to sponsor Louisville Irish Fest. After a brief interval of holding Louisville Irish Fest on the Belvedere, the festival returned to Bellarmine University in 2009.

The IAF is devoted to promoting Irish heritage through educational, cultural, and charitable events. The IAF is funded by corporate donations, event proceeds, and annual membership dues.
