Pro bono and gift in kind goods and services enable us to direct an even greater percentage of the donations we receive to our camp and outreach programmes. Examples of generous contributions include electronics, boats, vehicles, bed clothes, food items, cleaning and sanitary products, art supplies and furniture. Companies and individuals also donate time and services including photography, airfares, graphic design work and printing services.
Barretstown needs to raise €5 million a year to run our programmes, over 96% of which comes from voluntary contributions from generous individuals and companies. We receive a small grant from the HSE which accounts for the remaining 3%. Please see below examples of how other companies have helped Barretstown so generously.
