Collective Industry wide Fundraising Fundraising with industry colleagues and friends

basis.point and Irish Funds

Emergency Relief Fund 2020

In 2020, the Covid-19 pandemic rocked the communities that we serve to the core. We responded by launching a industry wide fundraising appeal to meet their essential needs such as food, shelter and emotional support.

Our endeavours introduced us to new partner charities and thanks to the industry wide generosity, we raised €200,000.  Collaborating with charities such as Barnardos, Belvedere Youth Club, Camara, Focus Ireland, Good Grub, Limerick Youth Services Centre, and The Peter McVerry Trust, education continued, families were supported and the vulnerable were not forgotten.

Individual Fundraising Fundraising with a collective effort

A rewarding experience

Holding your own fundraising event takes an enormous effort but can be a fun, rewarding experience and make a real difference. We are here to lighten the load and support you every step of the way.

Thanks to longstanding Patron John Hancock, we have been fortunate to receive a charity Golden Bib for the John Hancock Boston Marathon for the past two years.
