About UsThe Claddagh Fund is a registered 501(c)(3) charitable foundation of the Dropkick Murphys, founded by Ken Casey in 2009. Honoring the three attributes of the Claddagh Ring, friendship, love and loyalty, the mission of the Claddagh Fund is to raise money for the most underfunded non-profit organizations that support vulnerable populations in our communities.
“The generous gift made by The Claddagh Fund will help thousands of kids, both those with a disability and those without, to play together and better enjoy our state of the art playground. The good people of the Claddagh Fund have made an investment in fun for every child, of every ability. Nothing will ever replace our grandson Jake, but the smiling, laughing, squealing sounds of children having fun is the best possible way to remember him. The family and Board of Build Jake’s Place are deeply grateful to the Board and donors of the Claddagh Fund.” - Lynn Cummings Building Jake's Place
