Dublin Giving Ireland 2022 Launch Event

Giving Ireland is a joint collaboration between 2into3 and Philanthropy Ireland, looking at the fundraised income in Ireland from 2020. Deirdre Garvey, CEO of the Wheel, acknowledged that “This report has shown that the sector, as a whole, did not anticipate the full impact of COVID and the annual Giving Ireland reports are valuable for comparison purposes.”

Our Dublin Giving Ireland 2022 Launch event took place on Thursday 17th November. Deirdre Garvey hosted the session, inviting Niamh Carruthers to present the Giving Ireland 2022 report. Hereafter, we were delighted to be joined by the following panellists who provided their insights on the report:

– Jackie Harrison, Director of Philanthropy at The Community Foundation for Ireland. Jackie holds a masters research in the area of Philanthropy, and noted how the Giving Ireland Report reiterated the lack of data in this area. This report brought back the turmoil the sector faced in 2020, but agreed that we all look towards hopefully seeing a growth in Trusts and Foundations going forward.

– Charlie Lamson, Head of Fundraising at Irish Red Cross mentioned how The Irish Red Cross have witnessed incredible support for Ukraine, but the Giving Ireland report highlighted to him that the fundamentals of fundraising are critical.

Helen Martin, CEO at Charities Regulator, noted how she was surprised to see the overall income in the sector increased in 2020, but acknowledged that this was primarily from the government and did not impact all organisations in the sector equally.

– Anne-Marie Corry, Executive Director at TU Dublin Foundation, acknowledged the Giving Ireland report as an in-depth report, providing valuable insights by looking at trends. She noted the resilience of the sector, even throughout trying times during 2020.


After sharing their insights, we opened a Q&A session to all attendees. This provided a fantastic opportunity for a range of nonprofit representatives to share their own insights, ask the panellists and presenters informative questions on the report.

Our next Giving Ireland launch took place on Wednesday 23rd November in our office at Republic of Work, Cork. We were joined by a range of experienced panellists, including Rachel Stevenson, Head of Fundraising at Cork Simon Community, Michael Nason, CEO of Cork University Hospital Charity and James Lyons, Co- Founder of Sailing Into Wellness.

Hereafter, we invited our attendees to ask the panellists some questions on their insights. Our regional event in Cork provided a smaller group discussion around funding in 2020 and what that meant for specific nonprofit organisations in attendance.


Galway Launch Event

We concluded our in-person launch events in our office space at the Portershed, Eyre Square, on Thursday 24th November with Sharon Fitzpatrick, Head of Development at COPE Galway and John Crumlish, CEO at Galway Arts Festival.

We were delighted to see such fantastic attendee engagement at our regional in-person events. We look forward to doing more in future and bringing together nonprofit representatives across Ireland to discuss important topics within the sector.
