2into3 and Philanthropy Ireland announce their collaboration on “Giving Ireland” Report

Giving Ireland Logo

2into3 and Philanthropy Ireland today announced their collaboration on the creation and publishing of Giving Ireland Report 2020, a report on giving in the Irish Not-for-Profit sector.

Previously the performance of Irish fundraising was tracked by 2into3’s Irish Not-for-Profit Sector: Fundraising Performance Report’, and now in its 10th year has evolved into Giving Ireland. The aim of the Giving Ireland report is to provide insights into giving for the Not-for-Profit sector in Ireland, thereby informing decision making within the sector and supporting development of giving. Year on year comparisons with in-depth analysis, international comparisons around giving in Ireland make the publication a round year tool for the sector as well as an annual snapshot of the sector.

The report will indicate total income raised from philanthropic and other sources, provide analysis of fundraising performance year on year and the cost of raising funds by method. Using these insights, Not-for-Profit organisations, donors and policy makers will have evidence to inform their decisions in support of more strategic approaches to development of giving in Ireland. Giving Ireland promotes transparency and reform that will allow the sector to gain from better giving infrastructure.

Dennis O’Connor, 2into3 Director said: “We are delighted to collaborate with Philanthropy Ireland to produce Giving Ireland. Giving Ireland will provide objective information that will provide a platform for organisations to come together to debate and discuss solutions that will elevate the sector as a whole”.

Éilis Murray, Chief Executive Officer Philanthropy Ireland said “Data on giving is so important for the sector. Insights on giving patterns can provide real value for the growth and development of giving in Ireland, including philanthropic giving. We welcome this initiative to develop Giving Ireland and to be a part of it”.

What’s next for Sport Sector Fundraising as we exit lock-down

Join our Webinar “What’s next for Sport Fundraising?” as Ireland exits lock-down. How should sport organisations approach fundraising in the months ahead? Over a short number of weeks, we have seen significant changes in the sector. These changes have impacted the fundraising approach of sport organisations.

 

The announcement of €70m government support package for sport is very welcome and needed. Fundraising is largely untapped by sporting organisations. The latest evidence suggests that sport reports only 2%-3% of the total fundraised income in Ireland which was €1.1b in 2017. We have seen massive fundraising drives across Ireland from Irish sporting bodies. When it comes to donor priorities, where do sporting organisations rank in a post-lockdown Ireland?

 

What choices will have to be made to survive and thrive in the future? Sporting organisations across the country are built on a earned-income model which has been adversely impacted by Covid-19. As we progress into 2020 and a new decade, is now the time for sport to look at alternative sources of funding in order to balance risk?

 

The webinar will debate this and will start by looking at the current fundraising landscape in Ireland. We will look to international peers to see the pros and cons of the different approaches to sport fundraising and where opportunities may lie for National Governing Bodies, regional bodies and clubs. Our expert panel will take us through their experiences in fundraising for Irish sport to date while Rob Hartnett will cover some of the inventive club fundraising initiatives taking place around the country.

 

Joining 2into3 on the panel will be:

  • James O Callaghan, Performance Director, Irish Sailing
  • Tim Floyd, Secretary, Tipperary GAA
  • Rob Hartnett, CEO, Sport for Business

Date: Thurs 25th June 3pm.
