On Friday 29 September 2017, Paul O’Connell met with our grantees and partners in Limerick and was interested to learn more about the work they are doing.
basis.point would like to say a special thanks to our friends at Northern Trust, who in October 2017 entered a Partner Programme with us to support the launch of three of our grantee charities in Limerick.
Paul O’Connell’s launch of our new funding programme was covered recently in a short but very positive article in the Irish Times.

We’d like to say a huge thank you to all at Irish Funds for kindly allowing us to participate in this year’s Irish Funds conference on Thursday 25 May 2017. This was an excellent opportunity for basis.point to discuss the exceptional work our chosen charity partners are doing with the help of our generous patrons.
The results of the independent evaluation by Genio of the basis.point first two grants are extremely positive.
We’d like to say a special thanks to our friends at Dechert LLP and Carne Global Financial Services, who recently supported us in a very innovative way.
Delegates at their hugely successful Funds Congress event in London had the opportunity to make a Dough-nation to the chosen charities.
The coffee was great, the doughnuts delicious and the dough-nations generous. Many thanks to all for their continued support.
Irish Funds has appointed basis.point as one of it’s official charities and actively supports basis.point through regular donations and other non-financial support.
We presented two new patrons John Hancock and Manulife Asset Management with their patron certificates on a recent visit to their offices in Boston.
