Sunday Business Post to Publish Special Nonprofit Sector Report on 3 June
On Sunday 3 June, The Sunday Business Post will publish a special report on Ireland's Nonprofit Sector. This report will focus on the challenges faced by the sector in this period of renewal and change.
Ireland’s nonprofit sector has entered a new era of increased accountability, regulation and reporting. Over the past year, the Charities Regulator has issued a series of new financial reporting, governance and fundraising guidelines.
Nonprofits also have to comply with GDPR from 25 May. The Regulator will be publishing a new governance code for the sector in September and the Regulator is currently developing a set of compulsory financial reporting and fundraising guidelines. At the same time, there is a push toward innovation and professionalism.
These developments are already having far-reaching consequences in a sector that employs over 158,000 people (7.3% of all paid employment in Ireland) and has a combined annual income of 12.1bn.
Drawing on the latest research, in particular, this report will look at:
How the sector is adapting to the new regulatory framework, the role of the Charities Regulator and forthcoming regulatory requirements
Good financial and corporate governance in the sector. The implementation of voluntary codes and standards, including SORP, the Charities’ Regulators forthcoming governance code and its fundraising guidelines.
GDPR: how charities will comply with the General Data Protection Regulations
Charitable organisations and tax issues – how to apply for a tax exemption, eligibility and structures.
Guidelines for tendering and procurement. Support, advice and services available to Not-for-Profits to assist the transition to a commissioning model.
Human Resource Management, professional standards, training and leadership.
This report will be an ideal platform for businesses/experts who provide accounting, consultancy, legal, procurement and advisory services to charities and non-profit organisations to achieve a showcase in a highly relevant and supportive editorial.
The editorial & booking deadline is 1pm Tuesday, 29 May.
