What is this?

The Irish people are among the most generous in the world. However, it won't come as a surprise to learn that giving levels have dropped dramatically in the last few years.

The One Percent Difference is a new way of giving that enables everyone to give regardless of their financial situation.

The idea is simple. It doesn't matter who you are or what you do, we all give the same – 1%.

It's one percent of you. One percent of your time or one percent of your income, to a charity or cause you believe in.

Where did it come from?

The One Percent Difference is a campaign created by Philanthropy Ireland, the independent association of philanthropic organisations in Ireland.

The goal is to raise giving levels across the board in Ireland. It sounds like an impossible goal but it is actually very achievable.

The campaign is jointly funded by the Atlantic Philanthropies and the Department of the Environment, Community and Local Government.

My 1% is

If everyone gave 1% of their income it would more than double giving levels in Ireland.

If you give €250 or more per year to any one approved cause and you paid tax on it, then it's worth more to the cause. So your €250 becomes €362. Nice one. Check this out with your chosen cause.
