Bunaíodh An Foras Pátrúnachta sa bhliain 1993 chun rogha eile pátrúnachta a thabhairt do thuismitheoirí.

An Foras Pátrúnachta was founded in 1993 to give another choice to parents with regard to patronage.

The organisation grew quickly and Dónal Ó Conaill was appointed as General Secretary in the year 1999. Dónal worked with An Foras Pátrúnachta for 10 years. During this time the number of schools under the patronage of An Foras grew, received a lot of publicity and brought issues such as immersion education to the fore.

Since 2009, Caoimhín Ó hEaghra has been acting as General Secretary. From that period onwards, An Foras Pátrúnachta has had a central role in the founding of new schools, the Forum on Patronage, panel rights and more.
