From: Ted M. Sullivan, Chairman of Charities and Missions
On behalf of the AOH and Hibernian Charity I would like to extend a Happy Christmas and New Year to you and your families.
As part of our Motto, Charity is the heart of our Faith and Organization. The Mission of the Hibernian Charity is to support the Constitutional Purpose of the Ancient Order of Hibernians in America as they seek to, enhance, and protect our Catholic Church as well as Irish History, Culture, and aid our Membership when in distress.
What is Hibernian Charity?
The Hibernian Charity a 501-3 charitable enterprise was created to work with the A.O.H. in America to create a foundation where we might request, tax deductible to the donor, donations for the charitable projects of the Order. Through the Charity we are able to solicit donations from foundations, corporations, and individuals which would then be tax deductible to them. This allows us to fulfill the promises written in Preamble of the Constitution of our Order more efficiently.
What are examples of Charities Supported?
Project St. Patrick which provides financial assistance to those who seek a religious vocation within the Catholic Church.

Medal of Honor Grove Monument was donated in conjunction with the Irish Government and Hibernian Charities to recognized Medal of Honor recipients from Ireland as well as other nations, who died without establishing a residence in the United States.
