Coleraine Phoenix Peace Fountain - American supporters and contributors

Here are the names of some of the supporters and contributors to the Phoenix Peace Fountain. The fountain was a gift from communities in America to the people of Northern Ireland. Apologies if we have missed anyone out. ( If we have let us know and we'll add them in. ) The list is in random order.

As well as giving cash, many of the companies and individuals mentioned here helped in the design, whilst others donated materials, their time and expertise to build the sculpture. Another group of firms freely helped in the transportation of the fountain from America to its final proud resting place in Coleraine, Northern Ireland.
