Seminar: Financing and Fundraising in the Charity Sector

An invite from BEAUCHAMPS:

To coincide with Charity Trustees’ Week 2018, we are pleased to invite you to a breakfast briefing for leaders in the not for profit and charity sector.


7:30 - Registration, breakfast & networking   
8.00  - Seminar followed by Q&A
10.00 - Close

We will explore a number of challenges currently facing the ever growing not for profit and charities sector in Ireland including:

  • Charities Act 2009: Finance-related obligations under the Act, the proposed amendments to provisions of the Act and the draft accounting and reporting regulations
  • Brexit: company and regulatory issues to consider for  charities that will not have EU resident directors after Brexit. How will the Regulator mange UK charities that operate in Ireland  when the common legal EU structures no longer apply?
  • Fundraising guidelines: how to avoid fraud and ensure legal compliance and the legal issues surrounding digital fundraising including SORP accounting and regulatory aspects
  • General update for the sector in 2018 and other key issues in particular the growing cost of compliance


The Not for Profit and Charity sector continues to grow while also being the subject of much scrutiny and increasing governance and regulation. Donors are increasingly demanding greater transparency in terms of how charities are managed and where funds are being spent. The advent of online funding has also raised a number of issues and challenges. Brexit, in whatever form it takes, is also going to impact the sector. Charity boards, trustees and senior management need to raise funds effectively and legally, protecting the public’s trust and confidence in your charity’s work. This event will consider these latest developments and provide the latest guidance to assist you in dealing with reputational and public trust issues.


This interactive session will be moderated by Claire Callanan, Partner, Beauchamps and speakers will include Ivan Cooper, Director of Public Policy, The Wheel, Helen Martin, Director of Regulation, Charities Regulator and Deirdre Carwood, Head of Forensic Investigations & Corporate Intelligence KPMG.
