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.
