Lingua: EN

Inviato da Lucia Iacovone

The Charities Regulator Ireland issued an online survey to gauge the impact of the Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic on the sector. The Survey ran from 1 April to 13 April 2020 which was relatively early in what is a fast-moving public health crisis. The response rate was significant with 2,223 people completing the Survey.

Some key findings from the Survey are that, as a result of the Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic:

  • 55% of respondents said their charity’s finances were uncertain or in difficulty;
  • 68% of respondents said that their charity’s services were restricted as a result of the crisis;
  • While 29% of respondents indicated that their charity did not fundraise, of the 71% of respondents who said that their charities did fundraise, 90% stated that their charities had to cancel or postpone fundraising for 2020;
  • 54% of respondents were concerned that their charity may be unable to continue providing services for more than 6 months. Within this group, approximately 9% of respondents were 4 concerned that they may not be able to provide services for more than 1 month, 28% for more than 3 months and 17% for more than 6 months;
  • 73% of respondents said their charity trustees continued to communicate via email or by meeting remotely;
  • 52% or respondents said that they had reached out to other charities to discuss plans to deal with the current situation;
  • 89% of respondents said that due to Coronavirus (Covid-19) they regarded their charity’s annual reporting obligations and maintaining an accurate Register of Charities to be as important as always;
  • In open questions, respondents detailed how their charities were embracing technology and new practices to continue to deliver much needed services where possible and as an alternative means of fundraising.
