Why Donate

The Greater New Haven St. Patrick’s Day Parade is Connecticut’s largest single day spectator event attracting more than 325,000 people to the streets New Haven each year. The Parade is a longstanding tradition in the New Haven community, and the members of the Greater New Haven St. Patrick’s Day Parade Committee volunteer to ensure the tradition continues.

You may not be aware that the all-volunteer committee which plans the parade is also responsible for raising funds to put on the Parade.

Life, and the economy, has changed dramatically since the inception of the Parade, and although the City of New Haven helps defray the expense of putting on the Parade, the Greater New Haven St. Patrick’s Day Parade Committee volunteers year round to raise the funds to keep the Parade an ongoing event. Funds are raised through $2.00 Parade button sales, fundraisers held at the Irish clubs of Greater New Haven and local restaurants and bars, corporate sponsorship, and through the generous support of individuals like you.

There are several other ways to support the Parade. Links provide below and to the right.

100 Club

100 Club image

The 100 Club was created in 1991 to honor the memory of William F. Gallogly, Sr. who spearheaded re-establishing New Haven’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade in 1956, the initial idea was to get 100 people to donate $100 (totaling $10,000) to cover the majority of parade expenses. In 2015 we facing an estimated cost of $110,000 to put on the parade, and although a mere 100 people can’t cover the cost any longer, the 100 Club remains a way to lend your support to the Parade.
