Through the funds raised from various events, the Irish Pub Children’s Foundation provides annual grants to worthy applicants, immediate grants to first responders killed or critically injured in the line of duty and funding for its own initiative, the Police Youth Alliance Program.
The Police Youth Alliance, launched in 2015, is an initiative of the IPCF to bridge the gap between police officers and children in disadvantaged neighborhoods. The foundation is working with neighborhood schools to create programs taught by police officers that have appeal to the students, such as art, music, chess and dance. In partnership with the Philadelphia Police Department and Independence Mission Schools, this initiative was designed to create opportunities, through education, for police officers and students to interact in a positive manner.

The IPCF’s immediacy grant is provided to the family of any first responder who is killed or critically injured in the line of duty in the Greater Philadelphia and South Jersey Area.

In addition to the immediacy grant and Police Youth Alliance program, the Irish Pub Children’s Foundation’s guidelines reflect a continuous evolution of grantmaking for local children’s charities. The foundation has a specific interest in awarding grants to non-profits focused on education, recreation, and providing financial assistance to the families of fallen first responders.
