Taca - supporting Irish language
TACA is a not for profit charity which raises funds to promote the Irish Language. TACA, which means "Support" in Irish, was established in Belfast in 1994 to support the emerging Irish medium schools. In that time it has raised in excess of £2,000,000 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, a monthly donation scheme through standing order and sponsored events.
Every penny raised through TACA 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 language education throughout the north.
