Irish Charities Band Together To Bring ‘Good Form’ To Donors

THE GOOD FORM, a brand new charity taxback initiative launched today by a consortium of Irish charities, aims to bolster fundraising figures but at no extra cost to the Irish donor.

Twenty six of Ireland’s leading charities have come together under The Good Form initiative in a bid to encourage donors to give again just by adding their signature to the form, allowing their charity of choice to claim tax relief on their donations.

Speaking at the launch of The Good Form, economist David McWilliams said, “This is an enterprising scheme that could potentially boost any one of the charity’s income by thousands of euro.”

“By simply adding their signature to The Good Form anyone who has donated €250 or more in a year can help their chosen charity even further, yet it won’t cost the donor or the charity another cent”, said McWilliams

It is estimated that there are a further 50,000 Irish donors who could enable the taxback on their donations to benefit their charity of choice, with a combined value of up to €15m.

The Good Form is available from all eligible charities in Ireland.  Forms are pre-populated with the donor’s details in order to simplify and speed up the process for the donor.
