The Community Foundation for Ireland have released a report “Philanthropy, the views of those who advise the rich“. This is Ireland’s first ever survey of professional advisors focusing specifically on philanthropy.
A must read for all fundraisers in the Irish market. Some of the key findings that struck, and shocked me a bit, were the facts that:
- many advisors are still unsure how to deal with philanthropy and are uncomfortable raising the topic
- many advisors are unclear about the philanthropy vehicles available for would-be philanthropists
