This guide notes that despite the economic recession, the proportion of the population giving to charity is consistently very high in Ireland, with 89%of Irish adults donating to charities. It explains the most advantageous ways of doing so, including details of the fiscal status of charitable donations and the procedures by which individuals or families can make them. The authors also provide information about making bequests to charity and the most effective means of doing this. They observe that giving in Ireland has been characterized by spontaneous giving channels such as street collections and fundraising events. In conclusion, they suggest strategies to raise levels of giving and encourage planned and systematic donations.
