The Foundation also increased the value of its endowment, from €26.8 million to €28.7 million in 2012. The endowment increase was due to both new donors and capital growth. A number of new funds started in 2012, including family funds. The Foundation also reported a ‘surge’ in activity amongst existing and new donors towards the end of year which it said may have been linked to the changes in the tax regime governing charitable donations in the 2012 budget.

As well as individual donor advised funds, the Community Foundation for Ireland administers a number of company giving schemes. Examples include the SAP Fund which provided grants ranging from a few hundred euro to €50,000 for the Specialist People Foundation. Fundraising costs for the Foundation were roughly similar for both years at around €200,000.
