The Mendicity Institution Trust relies heavily on the generosity of the public who contribute valuable funds. These are wisely used to relieve the hardships of the less fortunate in our society.

Donate food (non-perishable goods, preferably) and clothing (items in a very good condition only, please!) – please phone 01 677 3308 to discuss our most urgent requirements and to arrange the drop off.

Cheques, postal orders, bank drafts can be sent to Kate Fitzsimons, The Mendicity Institution, 9 Island Street, Dublin 8.

Leave a Legacy

Tax Reclaim

Donations of €250 or over in a year are eligible for tax relief. As a registered charity, we can claim tax relief on donations over €250 that we receive from Irish tax payers. This allows us to make much more of the contribution you are making to our work.

If you are a PAYE or a self assessed taxpayer and you have donated €250 or more within one calendar year, we may be able to reclaim tax for your donation. The CHY3 (enduring certificate) can be downloaded here and the CHY4 (annual certificate) can be downloaded here. We would be grateful if you could complete, sign, and return the relevant form to our address.
