The Claddagh Fund: The Mission


The Claddagh Fund was founded in 2009 by Ken Casey of the Dropkick Murphys.  Ken, his bandmates and their families have supported charities throughout the history of the band.  Understanding the power of their position to harness the passion and generosity of their fans, the Claddagh Fund was created to raise funds for and broaden our impact on worthy, underfunded non-profits that support the most vulnerable individuals in our communities.

Benefiting Charities
Utilizing a grassroots approach to fundraising, The Claddagh Fund supports community-based non-profits, with a focus on children and veterans organizations and programs that support alcohol and drug rehabilitation in cities across the country and around the world. 

Children's Charities
The Claddagh Fund will focus on supporting child and youth-based non-profits, targeting organizations that support cancer research, support and recovery, youth sports, clubs and camps.  Organizations which provide opportunity to vulnerable and disenfranchised youth populations, providing the background, education and outlets necessary for children to develop into successful, considerate adults, will be strongly considered.

Veterans Charities
The commitment and sacrifice of soldiers and their families to our country is embodied in the values of friendship, love and loyalty—the core of the Claddagh Fund.  Without their unbelievable sacrifice and loyalty, our country would be a very different place.  It is an honor to, even in a minor way, pay tribute to these men and women and their families who humbly commit their lives to protect and serve others.

Alcohol and Drug Recovery Charities
As an important and personal issue to the Founder and members of the Board of Directors for the Claddagh Fund, financial support will be offered to aid successful programs in Boston, in Massachusetts and throughout the country which provide resources, care and instruction to those struggling with alcohol and drug addiction.  The Claddagh Fund will support programs that offer a comprehensive approach to alcohol and drug addiction, including education, training, housing and consistent social services and support beyond traditional short-term recovery methods.
