Irish Fundraising Reports Launched

Following their successful public launch in May by the then Minister for State, Pat Carey TD, the Irish Charities Tax Research (ICTR) have made two key reports on the state of charity fundraising in Ireland available to download from their website.

The first of these reports, Regulation of Fundraising by charities through legislation and codes of practice, "sets out a scheme to develop Codes of Good Practice on the operational and administrative aspects of fundraising by charities." The second report, General Statement of Guiding Principles for Fundraising, places particular emphasis on the impending publication of The Charities Bill and includes a proposal "that the operational and administrative aspects of fundraising would be regulated by agreed Codes of Practice to be developed with the sector."
