Benefacts. 11th May 2016, 2pm - 4pm.

Benefacts is a public database of nonprofit organisations in Ireland which, for the first time provides extensive information about the sector in a free public website.

The Benefacts database includes information about a wide array of non-commercial, non-governmental organisations which have been classified into twelve sectors; arts & culture, education, environment, health, local or international development, philanthropy, politics, religion, sport, social care and professional or vocational.

The scope of the Benefacts database is derived from a widely respected international standard, and it includes associations, clubs, faith bodies, friendly societies, schools and trusts, as well as not for profit companies.

Using this definition, Benefacts has identified one or more sources of regulatory data in each case for almost 20,000 Irish nonprofits.

In this afternoon seminar Benefacts Managing Director, Patricia Quinn, will explain how Benefacts works and why it is an important development for working in the nonprofit sector in Ireland.
