Impact & Transparency
When people ask me what difference a donation makes, I reply that donations allow us to make the ordinary, extraordinary. Every gift we receive, no matter the size, has impact. And every gift, when combined with thousands of other gifts, transforms children’s lives. That’s the simple truth. And that’s why in Temple Street Foundation we rely on our amazing family of supporters to keep the hospital going and make change happen. It’s their loyalty that allows us to plan for the future with total confidence.
We are extremely proud of the Foundation and everything that it has achieved for the little patients in our care. And we are very aware that none of what we do would be possible without the trust and generosity of our donors, fundraisers, ambassadors and network of volunteers. They are the real heroes that enable us to do so much.
And it’s because of that trust and generosity that we go to great lengths to ensure that we are open and transparent in everything that we do. We are fully compliant with all legal and regulatory requirements and our accounts are audited and available on our website for all to see. We are signed up to the Statement of Guiding Principles for Fundraising which was developed by the Irish Charities Tax Reform Group (ICTR). And we are also signed up to the Governance Code - a Code of Practice for Good Governance of Community, Voluntary and Charitable Organisations in Ireland www.governancecode.ie and are 100% compliant.
I would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank everyone who has supported us down through the years. The hospital is what it is today because of people like you and I hope you will continue to be part of our future.
