27 February, 2020

Last week, Benefacts adopted and published our 2019 annual report, marking five years in business making the work of Irish nonprofits more transparent and more accessible.

 

We thought we would have a look in our Database of Irish Nonprofits to see what other anniversaries might strike a chord with visitors to Benefacts.ie.

The Economic and Social Research Institute is 60 this year. Like Benefacts, it was established under a far-sighted partnership with 50:50 co-funding between the Irish Government and a prominent philanthropic foundation – in their case, the Ford Foundation, in ours, the Atlantic Philanthropies and the Ireland Funds. May we live so long.

We were curious to see what other nonprofits had reached their 50th birthdays around the same time, and we found some encouraging evidence of the durability of Irish nonprofit companies.

Gorta, which recently merged to become Self-Help Africa was 50 last year; so was St Michael’s House, the Scouts Association, the Consumers Association of Ireland, the Irish Family Planning Association and PACE – Prisoners’ Aid Through Community Effort. Have a look at the full list here.

2020 will see fiftieth birthdays for the Irish Georgian Society, the Marketing Society, Dublin Simon Community, Ballyfermot Community Association and more.

50 years is a long time in the life of any company. How many commercial SMEs have passed their fiftieth anniversary with so much to show in terms of contributing to the quality of life in Ireland?
