About Irish Fellowship Club
Established in 1901, the Irish Fellowship Club of Chicago was formed by a dedicated collective of Irish-American individuals with the objective of fostering a positive perception of the Irish community within the city. Over the course of a century, the IFC has experienced remarkable expansion, facilitating the collection of nearly one million dollars in charitable donations to support both Irish Americans and various organizations in Chicago and beyond.
At Irish Fellowship Club, we are committed to maintaining transparency and accountability in our operations. As part of our dedication to good governance, we make available certain essential documents that highlight our financial integrity and our tax-exempt status under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
We strive to maintain compliance with all applicable regulations and requirements associated with our nonprofit status, and we encourage our supporters and the public to review these documents to gain confidence in our commitment to transparency and good stewardship of resources.
