The Irish FA Foundation is a charitable foundation that was set up in 2016. It funds the charitable work of the Irish Football Association throughout Northern Ireland. The Irish FA Strategy states the desire to reach beyond the game and build a culture of lifelong participation in football.

The foundation’s partnership with the Extern Syrian Refugee Support Team is part of its continued commitment to Football For All. Together they will develop initiatives using football as a vehicle to engage and integrate refugees into Northern Ireland communities.
