Benefacts Launching Open Datasets Initiative This Week

Valuable data for You

Benefacts has built the Database of Irish Nonprofits by taking data from many public sources, refining it and publishing it online for easy access.  With financial, governance and regulatory information on almost 20,000 Irish nonprofits, this is a hugely valuable resource for you and your nonprofit organisation.

A bigger, bolder database

Recently, Benefacts has added new organisations to the database. Alongside community and voluntary organisations, charities, sports bodies, religious organisations and schools, they have added Trade Unions, Friendly Societies and Industrial and Provident Societies.

Benefacts Open Datasets

Benefacts has recently launched a new innovation – Benefacts Open Datasets -an initiative which provides free downloadable data files containing information on 20,000 Irish nonprofits (where available) across a number of relevant fields, including registered name, classification, address, regulatory number(s) and the authorities by which the nonprofit is regulated.  These will be available for download from Wednesday, 23 November. Learn more and download the files here >>

Transparency in the Nonprofit Sector

A topical area, the issue of transparency and reporting for nonprofits has received a lot of attention of late. Benefacts has published a series of blogs looking at the challenges and methods of financial reporting for the nonprofit sector.
