September Newsletter Update

2021 has been a busy year for charities and it’s been a busy time too for Campaign Solutions.

I am currently compiling a Million Euro Donations report for Ireland. The good news is that over 100 have been identified… but there are more. Each donation listed has to have a web source link included. It covers gifts from individuals, corporates, gifts to and from foundations and bequests. Many in the public domain are to the university sector but there are many more in charities that have received less publicity (I believe). If your charity was the beneficiary of such largesse and you have information you can share – including basic details for anonymous donations – please do let me know. In time a report will be made available on request and the data will also form the basis for a number of philanthropy seminars also.

Charity Fundraising Reviews. Campaign Solutions has undertaken a number of fascinating fundraising reviews for charities in 2021 and is starting another.

Legacy research consortium: Thank you to the 21 charities who came on board to undertake new legacy research.
