Christmas appeal

Christmas is a time of Giving and this year our Christmas Campaign is focused on “The Gift of Giving”. We are highlighting the importance of Regular Giving. How it offers: Stability to Programmes, Greater Impact and Brighter Futures


Will you become our next Regular Giver?

To continue to deliver our programmes, we need a constant income stream. We want to continue growing and supporting communities in 2020 and overall our aim is to empower people to create their own opportunities for a Brighter Future.

A regular donation can be for any amount you choose. Think for a minute – how often to you buy yourself a cup of Coffee? The cost of 2 coffee’s a week adds up to €21 per month – as a registered Charity, we can claim back Tax on donations from PRSI contributions – your €21 per month could bring in an extra €113.22 to the charity in Tax refunded. For us – this is invaluable. Take out 2 Coffees a week - is it a lot to ask?

If you are interested in becoming a Regular Giver, please contact Aoife: aoife@brightercommunities.org for information or find out more through our Website.
