Donors

This year we set two high-level fundraising goals. To increase our corporate sponsorship; and to partner with 147 Friends of BlueFire to donate €10 per month.

Why 147? Why €10?

It costs €1,469 per month to keep our doors open.

  • €75 internet & online services
  • €85 phone
  • €109 office rent
  • €200 petty cash (coffee’s at meetings, volunteer expenses etc)
  • €1,000 salary paid to our CEO (who works full time)

Some of our current funding, such as corporate sponsorship or festival grants, has to also cover these overheads* and takes away from our ability to use that money to directly benefit the community. Our goal is that by the end of 2018, we will have partnered with 147 people who believe in our vision and want to donate the cost of a cuppa per week, so that we can increase our sustainability. This will cover all our overheads & operational costs, so that we can give 100% of our time, energy and funds to serving the people of Dublin.

Your contribution ensures that every penny we raise beyond our 147 Friends of BlueFire, goes directly into running our programmes in the community. 

We, the young people of Dublin, are committed to affecting long term social change. Will you join us by contributing €10 per month?

*Some of our grants are restricted funds, that must be spent on specific costs. In these cases, grants are only used as outlined in the grant agreement. In all cases, funders receive a detailed report with how their money was used.
