Embargo Lift Date
Data on philanthropic giving is not systematically collected in Ireland. Benefacts manages The Benefacts Database of Irish Nonprofits and collects data on the financial information of registered charitable organizations operating within Ireland. The independent nonprofit organization publishes an annual report of the Irish Third Sector using data voluntarily submitted by civil society organizations (CSOs), including total income of the sector. The publicly available data does not include cross-border financial flows (Benefacts, 2019). The figure for Irish aggregate cross-border giving in 2017 compares the total income of the nonprofit sector provided by Benefacts to the percentage of fundraised income for international causes according to the 2into3 annual fundraising report on the Irish nonprofit sector. Data on cross-border giving in Ireland presented in the 2020 GPT come from the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD).
