Charities Institute Ireland

Who are we for

"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.
