Fund Raising Initiatives
 


Carbery Housing Association is a voluntary initiative by the local community. It therefore receives no statutory or core funding for its activities. The only exception was Start Up Grant from the Department of Environment, Heritage and Local Government. Carbery Housing Association received € 38,000 start up grant over a four-year period from the Department, from 2002 to 2005.
 

Apart from this, Carbery has been funded to date by the European Projects it has participated in, and by private fund-raising by its members. 

At present Carbery Housing Association has three main Fund raising Initiatives:


Tax deductible Charitable Giving

As a non-profit company with Charitable Status, donations to Carbery Housing Association from individuals and companies can be declared as tax-deductible at the appropriate percentage rate by companies and individuals. 

people Charitable giving offers many benefits to the community and the donor. The Irish tax system contains a range of incentives aimed at facilitating and encouraging charitable giving by individuals and companies, which help to ensure that charities receive the maximum benefit from public and private donations. 

Many individuals and companies are unaware of these incentives as the most efficient and beneficial methods of charitable giving. This can result in the incentives being underused, effectively denying Irish charities valuable resources to fund their work. 
 

Carbery Housing Association has produced guidelines to give an overview of the range of tax incentives available in Ireland and in doing so to assist the promotion of charitable giving.
