FAO Susan Carey Dempsey. I was intrigued to read your piece (from March which I have only picked up on just now) on ‘patient philanthropy in Northern Ireland’. It is reassuring to learn that there are peole across the Atlantic that a) still have an interest in Northern Ireland and b) undrestand the situation. I thought you might be interested in a resource we created along with INCORE in Derry to keep people informed on the background but also the on-going initiatives in relation to peacebuilding in Northern ireland. Please feel free to use / distribute the link as you wish
We have also recently launced a web based resource for professional advisors in Northern ireland with the aim of getting philanthropy onto their agenda.
I would welcome any comment from you on its form or content. Best wishes. Dr. James Magowan
