Philanthropy Ireland seminar will discuss new research

The Community Foundation for Ireland in association with Philanthropy Ireland is holding a breakfast seminar tomorrow in Dublin for advisors with an interest in increasing their knowledge of philanthropy.
Seamus Mulconry, Chief Executive of Philanthropy Ireland, will present on what he calls “a snapshot of people’s giving in post Tiger Ireland”. Mike Gaffney, Tax Partner with KPMG will respond and also give an advisor’s perspective on when, how and if we need philanthropy advice.
The seminar is based on brand new market research of over 1,000 adults aged 16+ by Behaviour And Attitudes for Philanthropy Ireland to gauge awareness and understanding of philanthropy and its role. The research revealed differences in people’s understanding of the concept, the amounts people give and how they give.
Most claim in the market research to have given something to charity 11 times in the last two years. There are very marked variations in people’s understanding of philanthropy and in their giving behaviour based on their social class age and location.
Irish people are very positively disposed towards philanthropy with roughly 42% agreeing and only 7% disagreeing that philanthropy has an important role to play in shaping society in Ireland.
This event, which is KPMG’s offices, 1 Harbourmaster Place, IFSC, Dublin, will begin at 07:30 and is open to professional advisors and members of Philanthropy Ireland only.
