As a non-governmental organisation receiving guaranteed funding for only approximately eighty percent of our running costs, Donegal Sexual Abuse & Rape Crisis Centre are dependent on financial support from the public.
The Donegal Sexual Abuse & Rape Crisis Centre receives funds from the HSE but there is a large gap between the funding we receive and our actual outgoings. Fundraising is a constant uphill battle for the Centre and we are always very grateful to receive donations.

Any donations received remain confidential.

If you would like to make a donation, please contact our office at 074-9128211 or email us at info@donegalrapecrisis.ie

Tax Relief on Donations

There are a number of tax benefits associated with annual donations of €250+ to the Donegal Sexual Abuse & Rape Crisis Centre. The recipient of the benefit depends on the type of taxpayer making the donation:

PAYE Taxpayers:

In the case of PAYE taxpayers, donations of €250+ received by the Donegal Sexual Abuse & Rape Crisis Centre, or any other registered charity, in one tax year are treated as having been received "net" of tax.

For Example:

  • (a) Individual on the standard rate of tax, i.e. 20%
    • Individual donates €500
    • Value of donation to the DSA&RCC = €625, i.e. €500 x (100 ÷ 80)
    • Tax associated with the donation (€625 - €500) = €125
    • The DSA&RCC will therefore be able to claim a repayment of €125 from Revenue at the end of the tax year.
  • (b) Individual on the higher rate of tax, i.e. 41%
    • Individual donates €500
    • Value of donation to the DSA&RCC = €847.46, i.e. €500 x (100 ÷ 59)
    • Tax associated with the donation (€847.46 - €500) = €347.46
    • The DSA&RCC will therefore be able to claim a repayment of €347.46 from Revenue at the end of the tax year.
Self-Assessed Taxpayers:

Self-assessed taxpayers can reclaim the income tax they pay on donations of €250+ in any one tax year. We will send you a receipt for your donation. When you fill out your tax return, deduct the donation amount from your taxable income thus reducing your tax bill. The donor benefits directly from the tax relief on donations.

Corporate Donations:

The company claims a deduction for donations of €250+ in any one tax year as if it were a trading expense. The company benefits from the tax relief.
