Our Funding & Governance
LauraLynn is financed through the generosity of public donations for our children’s hospice care service, while the HSE funds our adult and children disability service under a Section 38 grant.
We take the commitment and trust of our donors and funders very seriously and we honour it by providing clear and transparent information about how we raise our money, how we account for it and how we spend it.
Here’s how our money was spent in 2015…
Thanks to the generosity and goodwill of the public and business community, in 2015 we raised €2,898,979 to provide our children’s hospice care services. For every €1 raised 84c was used to provide care to families and 16c to generating funds.
Here’s where the money came from in 2015…
LauraLynn publishes its financial accounts annually. In the absence of statutory reporting standards for charities in Ireland, our financial accounts are prepared in accordance with UK best practice, SORP (Statement of Recommended Practice).
We are fully transparent about our finances and adhere to Irish Charities Tax Research Ltd (ICTR) Guiding Principles for Fundraising as well the HSE Compliance Statement for Section 38 Agencies and the Governance Code for Community, Voluntary & Charitable Organisations.
No top up payments are made to LauraLynn employees. LauraLynn Board members and the chairman of the Board are volunteers and donate freely of their time, skills and experience.
