Atlantic Philanthropies


We strive to advance opportunity and lasting change for those who are unfairly disadvantaged or vulnerable to life’s circumstances.

We have concentrated our grantmaking in seven regions across the globe. Many of our programmes in these countries grew out of our Founding Chairman’s identification of promising opportunities for good-value investment and prospects for transformative impact in Atlantic’s limited lifetime.

The targeted geographic areas funded by Atlantic are Northern Ireland, the Republic of Ireland and the United States. As a result of our limited life, we made our final grants in Bermuda, South Africa and Viet Nam in 2013, and Australia in 2011.
