He said he was motivated to make the donation out of admiration for John Hume’s anti-sectarian work and the support given by former speaker of the US Congress, Tip O’Neill, to the peace process. Mr O’Neill died in 1994.Since retiring from his role at Coca Cola Dr Isdell has dedicated himself to philanthropy, particularly in Africa.The fundraising campaign for the Chair in Peace recently received another boost following a £1 million challenge grant from the International Fund for Ireland (IFI). The University of Ulster will receive the IFI grant if they raise a matching £1 million by 2013.www.ulster.ac.ukcenter_img  21 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis advertisementFind major donor fundraiser jobs in UK Fundraising’s classifieds section.
