Taca - supporting Irish language
TACA is a registered charity which raises funds to promote the Irish Language. TACA - which means "Support" in Irish was established in Belfast 15 years ago to support the emerging Irish medium schools. In that time it has raised in excess of £800,000 which was given to struggling Irish projects throughout the North.
TACA raises funds by selling scratch cards for its lottery from door to door and in shops and through placing collection boxes in shops and other businesses.
Every penny donated through the collection boxes and lottery tickets goes directly to assist Irish medium schools. TACA is a fundraising agent of Iontaobhas na Gaelscolaíochta, the Trust Fund for Irish medium education, which was set up to finance and promote Irish education throughout the north.
