As giving to the Not-for-Profit sector increases, International Development loses ground

(30 Jun 2017)




After falling for three consecutive years, fundraised income levels in the International sector returned to positive levels in 2014 and 2015 but loses ground again in 2016.

2into3 Director, Dennis O’Connor, speaking at the Dóchas CEO Breakfast Briefing this week, highlighted how data mining using research from 2into3’s Annual Fundraising Performance Report since 2009 and 2into3’s Quarterly Fundraising Monitor since 2014 shows the fundraising by International Development organisations is falling while the rest of the Not-for-profit sector has risen each year since 2010.

The impact of emergency appeals masks an underlying decline in giving to International causes. There are differences in fundraising mix, investment levels by method and returns between International Development organisations and the rest of the Sector which requires further study. At the same briefing nfpSynergy presented data from their engagement monitor which showed a general fall in trust levels for charities since 2009 until very recently when levels have started to recover. Again, the International Development sector, despite the higher incidence of scandals in other sectors, diverges from domestic causes.  The data suggests that a solution will require more than addressing the trust issue.

With six years of data in terms of annual reports and three years of quarterly participants in 2into3’s quarterly monitoring service have a unique source of market intelligence. For more information about this service call Elena on 01 2343124 or at
