The 22nd February course is fully booked.

Cii are hosting the session again on 23rd May 2017.

Following four years of intense negotiation the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is now due to come into effect in 2018.  Charities Institute Ireland will be hosting a Professional Certificate in Data Protection on February 22nd 2017 at RCPI, No. 6 Kildare Street, Dublin 2.  

For charities, as for all other businesses, this updated data protection framework represents both an opportunity and a challenge. The GDPR has been designed to give the public a greater amount of control over their personal data and the manner in which it is collected and used by companies. As such, charities need to be aware that when it comes to fundraising, all data collection and processing activities will soon require more rigorous controls than at present, while potential penalties for non-compliance will be far more onerous. Join us on February 22nd and learn how you can manage your organisations data bases in line with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) .

Take your career to the next level and join our tutor, Linda Ni Chualladh (Data Protection Lawyer), for an intensive workshop followed by a live exam where on completion you will be awarded with a Professional Certificate in Data Protection.

What We Offer

Academy

Irish people are extremely generous when it comes to supporting the causes close to their heart. Best practice charities understand that responding to that generosity with full and open transparency, accountability and ethics are an essential part of instilling trust and confidence. 

That is why training in the skills required are mission critical for professional fundraising charities.

Collective voice

The last three years have seen dramatic changes in public confidence and an erosion of trust. This is the new reality facing charities.

Charities Institute Ireland will respond to this new reality with a combined representative voice of our members that proactively works to re-establish public confidence and promote public giving.

ADVOCACY

A vibrant charity sector is dependent on a fertile environment for giving. Charities Institute Ireland will work on behalf of our members to ensure the best possible environment for giving for the charity sector. 

This includes dedicated lobbying on matters that affect the charity landscape from tax policy to regulation, to providing a trusted link between sector, state and media.

"We will work towards a society that better understands, appreciates and trusts charities and the immensely positive contribution they make to solving long term societal problems."

Who are we for?

All fundraising charities in Ireland will benefit directly from our work on improving the policy climate, public trust, and capacity building training which will enhance their ability to attract support for their causes and contribute to greater social impact.

However, we believe the best impact can be achieved by focusing on the top 500 fundraising charities who account for €3.2 bn of the total €6bn raised by the entire NFP sector (25k organisations). Focusing on these will create a positive ripple effect for the entire sector. We are committed to playing our part in raising the bar while providing the ladder for all to climb.
