A massive thank you to Sinead Price, Co-Director of Fundraising at Pieta House, for joining our Irish Giving Index webinar on Tuesday 27th April. Sinead discussed how Pieta House use the Irish Giving Index to make strategic fundraising decisions and identify fundraising opportunities. They also use it as a tool to monitor their performance against the sector and then their own subsector.
Pieta provides professional support to those who are having suicidal thoughts, with extended support to friends and family who have lost someone due to suicide. They provide a free 24/7 helpline, with accredited therapists to help anyone experiencing suicidal thoughts.
Sinead explained how beneficial the Irish Giving Index is at identifying where opportunities currently are and using the data to build a case for securing board level sign-off of plans.
During the Irish Giving Index webinar, 2into3 explained the breakdown of fundraising by subsector, organisational size and fundraised income for Q3 2020. The cost to raise €1 in Q3 2020 had fallen to an average of €0.19, with costs per each method of fundraising detailed.
