The Irish Not-for-Profit Sector: Fundraising Performance Report (2016)

 

This is the 6th annual Fundraising Performance Report prepared by 2into3 for the Irish not-for-profit sector. It provides a detailed overview of a representative sample of organisations and insights into their activities and experiences, especially in relation to fundraising. 
This report estimates the total amount of fundraised income or philanthropy in Ireland in 2014 and takes into account the now established size of the sector in light of the Charities Regulatory Authority’s registered list of charities and the Benefacts database, which has adapted the John Hopkins Classification in consultation with national stakeholders. 

This report highlights the critical importance of making improvements to the quality of data in the sector. There is a need for the sector to come together and address this gap  in order to develop a knowledge base on which to benchmark and make decisions. 

 

 

 

The Irish Not-for-Profit Sector: Fundraising Performance Report (2015)

This is the fifth annual Fundraising Performance Report prepared by 2into3 for the Irish not-for-profit sector. It provides a detailed overview of a representative sample of organisations and provides insights into their activities and experiences, especially in relation to fundraising. This report estimates both the size of the not-for-profit sector and the total amount of fundraised income or philanthropy in Ireland, in 2013. The sector is important economically yet under researched. Charitable giving is a significant source of income, and rose for the fourth year in succession in 2013 yet lags behind the U.K on a per capita basis and as a proportion of GDP. For the first time, this report outlines differences as to why charitable giving is higher in the U.K which may prompt discussion on how, and to what extent, this gap can be bridged.

 

 

Fourth Annual Report on Fundraising Performance in Ireland (2014)

This paper is fourth in a series of reports by 2into3 which analyses the fundraising performance of not-for-profit organisations in Ireland. This report consists of findings based on a representative sample of over 800 organisations in the Irish not-for‐profit sector. This report provides a quantitative insight into the current status of the sector, especially in relation to fundraising performance and mix. The report also estimates the total fundraised income from philanthropic sources in 2012. The aim of the paper is to provide objective information, to stimulate debate and discussion among and within organisations and to promote more open and detailed reporting of fundraising data.

 

 

 

 

Third Annual Report on Fundraising Performance in Ireland (2013)

 

This paper is based on the annual accounts of a representative sample of Irish not-for‐profit organisations, and is an attempt to provide a quantitative insight into the current status of the sector, especially in relation to fundraising performance and costs. The aim of the paper is to provide objective information, to stimulate debate and discussion among and within organisations and to promote more open and detailed reporting of fundraising data.

We hope that this report will encourage debate, discussion and reflection and will encourage civic and private stakeholders to support the efforts of the sector in enhancing fundraising performance.


 

 

 

 

 Second Annual Report on Fundraising Performance in Ireland (2011)

 

This Report, sponsored by Ulster Bank and Mason Hayes & Curran, is the second in a series of reports by 2into3 which analyses the fundraising performance of not-for-profit organisations in Ireland. Through the analysis of over 170 accounts, the findings show an increase in fundraised income of just under 24% for the sector. However, the Report also finds that this increase in fundraising is not uniform across the sector and has been led by increased donations into the international aid organisations with donations to organisations providing domestic services increasing slightly. Overall, there continues to be large variances in performance amongst organisations sector-wide.
 

 

 

 

  The First Annual Report on Fundraising in Ireland (2010)

 

This study represents the first analysis of the effects of the economic downturn on third sector income. A key finding of the report identifies that philanthropic or fundraised income is down 13% year on year. This research by 2into3 is based on figures from the annual accounts of 80 not-for-profit organisations. The research allows CEO’s and fundraisers to get an overall view of the condition of the sector in 2009 and to determine their own fundraising performance compared to that of other similar not-for-profits. 


 

 

 

 

 

Fundraising in a Cold Climate (2008)

 

This study looks at the uncertainty of fundraising in an economic downturn and compares international experience with the difficulties faced by not-for-profits in Ireland. This uncertainty comes at a time when many not‐for-profits are also facing an increased demand for their services and are simultaneously looking at a potential cut or freeze in government spending. So what is the future likely to hold for not-for‐profits in an economic climate that is becoming increasingly difficult? Is it time to give in to the doom and gloom and resign ourselves to the fact that at the moment, and for the foreseeable future, fundraising is doomed to fail?
