As a non-profit, non-governmental organisation, our work depends on government grants; funding from our members, friends, donors, the business and philanthropic community; and income generated through our Armoury Cafe, on-site accommodation and fundraising initiatives.
Through good governance, stringent programme monitoring and evaluation, we ensure our funding delivers on our goals of promoting peace and developing as an important resource for the global peacebuilding community.
Since 1974 Glencree has been instrumental in resolving conflict across the island of Ireland and sharing our unique experience and expertise in over 10 conflict and post-conflict countries around the globe.
Global Peace Centre
As we realise our goal of establishing Glencree as a Global Peace Centre, and with the support of our Patron, President Michael D. Higgins, we are grateful to the Office of Public Works (OPW) and Wicklow County Council for their commitment to fund the development of our campus over the next three years. This includes the development of state-of-the-art meeting, training and lecture facilities, on-site accommodation options, a Peace Library and Resource Centre. Plans are also advanced to develop a Garden of Remembrance and Reflection across our 16 acre site in the Wicklow mountains.
