How you can help

22q11 Ireland provides those living with 22q11 Deletion Syndrome and their families with an introduction to a compassionate community that strengthens and supports its members. We advocate for coordinated care for those living with 22q11, sharing vital information and resources, and encouraging access to professionals and educators with expertise in the field.

22q11 Ireland is entirely funded through donations, sponsorship and fundraising. Without this help, we would be unable to carry out our important work in the fields of education, medical research and family support. We regularly organise family days out, to the zoo or a park, and it’s crucial that we are able to continue to provide such opportunities for those living with 22q11 to meet, exchange ideas and share experiences.

There are many ways you, your family or your work colleagues and school friends can help.  You could make a once-off donation, arrange for a monthly standing order, or organise a fundraising event.  You can learn more about supporting us by clicking on the links below.

If you’d like to discuss fundraising with us, we’d be delighted to talk to you; please contact a member of our team at or call us on 087 741 2856.
