"Giving and Gaining - How Entrepreneurs view Philanthropy in Ireland"
The Community Foundation for Ireland recently launched a new report: Giving & Gaining: How Entrepreneurs View Philanthropy in Ireland. Relatively little is known about philanthropy in Ireland – in terms of more strategic, structured and purposeful giving. In particular, little is known about philanthropic donors or those with the propensity to give. This report provides insights into one such group and has been undertaken by The Community Foundation for Ireland in playing its part in promoting greater philanthropy in Ireland. They are aware of the particular impact that successful entrepreneurs are having on the world of philanthropy and in this study was interested to explore philanthropic giving by Irish entrepreneurs in the light of significant entrepreneurial success in Ireland in the last 15 years.
Positively, despite relatively low engagement in structured and strategic giving to date, the study finds that there is a clear appetite for engaging more in philanthropy amongst many entrepreneurs. There is also a clear interest in seeing certain trends and supports which have encouraged entrepreneurs to engage in philanthropy globally, replicated in Ireland so that there is a more supportive environment for philanthropy.
