Charitable Objectives


Ulster Historical Foundation is an educational charity and is registered with The Charity Commission for Northern Ireland NIC100280. It does not receive any funding from government and needs your support to deliver our range of services. Please make a donation to help us continue with our mission to tell the story of the people of Ulster.

There are many ways in which you can support us and any contribution, large or small, really does make a difference and is appreciated greatly.

Make a single donation

A single donation is always welcome to assist us in our work. You can make your donation safely and securely by using our online donation facility.

Donate to a specific project

Instead of giving a general donation, you may prefer to donate to a particular project and see directly how your money makes a difference.

Leave a legacy

After making provision for loved ones, you may feel able to leave something to a cause that is close to your heart. Costing nothing in your lifetime, leaving a gift in your will to the Ulster Historical Foundation has the potential to sustain our work for many years to come. To discover how to make a legacy contact Fintan Mullan, Executive Director

Donate in memory

Making a donation in memory provides the opportunity to commemorate a loved one’s life in a meaningful and positive way while assisting the work of the Foundation. To make a donation in memory of a loved one please contact Fintan Mullan, Executive Director

Guild Membership Subscriptions

The Ulster Genealogical and Historical Guild provides access to a range of specialist resources and services and currently has almost 2,000 members. Membership is reasonably priced, starting at £31.00. If you are interested in joining the Guild or wish to renew your membership, you might also consider making a top-up, an additional sum to support our work.

Gift Aid (for UK taxpayers)

Gift Aid is a simple, yet very effective way of giving to charity. For every pound you are able to give the Foundation, HM Revenue and Customs will add an extra and substantial 25 pence. This is at absolutely no cost to you. To Gift Aid your donation you can complete the Gift Aid declaration on the printed application form.

Tax efficient giving

Residents of the USA can enjoy tax-efficient giving thanks to an arrangement between the Foundation and The Irish American Partnership  (The Irish American Partnership, Inc. 33 Broad Street Boston, Massachusetts 02109.)

The Irish American Partnership (IAP) has agreed to act as an intermediary body through which donors can support the work of the Ulster Historical Foundation.

Remember, to enjoy the tax benefit, donors must make their donation payable to The Irish American Partnership as it is the 501(c)(3) body to which the contributor is donating. Donors can then recommend to IAP that they would like to support the work of Ulster Historical Foundation.

Any donor who would like further advice before making a contribution may contact Fintan Mullan, Executive Director of Ulster Historical Foundation All matters will be dealt with in a discreet and confidential manner.

Of course another great way to support the Foundation is by giving your time. We can use your skills with tasks that will help develop wider access to our resources. And in the global environment created by the Internet, often it does not matter where the donor lives.

Ulster Historical Foundation is committed to openness and transparency and can assure all donors that contributions will be used in accordance with the wishes of the donor.
