Voluntary Donations and Fundraising Activities

We believe that our services must be available free of charge. This means that most of our costs have to be met through voluntary donations and fundraising activities. We are grateful to all who support us in this way.

How to Donate

A little can go a long way towards helping another family on their journey through loss…

  • A €5 donation will cover tea and refreshments for our visitors when they call to use our comforting and confidential support service.
  • A €20 donation will allow us to purchase additional art materials for use in our one-to-one support sessions.
  • A €50 donation will cover the cost of a one-to-one support session for a child or a young person.
  • A €200 donation will fund the cost of a Schools’ Bereavement Support Workshop.

You can increase the impact of your generous donation to the Children’s Grief Centre by 45% with a simple signature. The Charity Tax-Back scheme means that if you have donated €250 or more in the tax year, then the Children’s Grief Centre can reclaim the tax on your donation. The net result? Your donation of €250 is actually worth €362 – at no extra cost to you.

2. Support Our New Building Fund

To help more children, we need more space. Over time we have out-grown our premises, and in the next two years our goal is to acquire new premises.

Can you help us reach this goal? Your organisation could consider making a financial contribution towards our New Building Fund or sponsor one of the proposed new rooms which are outlined below. For example your funding could be used to fund decoration/re-modelling of a specific room or space in our new home.

  • Art Room 1
  • Art Room 2
  • Sensory Room
  • Teen Room
  • Parent’s Waiting Room
  • Staff Room
  • Outside Play Area

3. Company Giving

Partnerships are at the very heart of The Children’s Grief Centre. To date, we have acted as a safe and supportive space for over 1,100 children and we could not have done so without our incredible partners in the corporate world.

These solid partnerships are important for the sustainability of our work and allow us to plan for the future with confidence. If your company would like to show your support in this way we’d love to talk. Whether you’d like to back a specific project, or you’re looking for an on-going, strategic relationship we’ll work with you to tailor a partnership that matches your needs and which is a good fit for your core values and staff.
