Face to Face Fundraising

Face to face fundraising is one of the best ways for us to raise awareness, increase our income and gain new monthly Miracle Club donors. It is a well-established activity that many charities in Ireland are using.

This type of giving ensures we have consistent income to be able to provide world-class equipment, treatment and compassionate care to sick children in CHI at Temple Street today and into the future.  

The following FAQs should answer any questions you might have about Temple Street’s door-to-door fundraisers. If you have any further queries or concerns please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Social distancing, PPE and Hygiene etiquette 

Our fundraising representatives will be wearing face visors, a social distancing pin on their jacket and will be issued with a personal bottle of hand sanitizer to use throughout each day.   

You will not need to touch the fundraiser’s device in order to complete a sign-up to a monthly donation – this can be done remotely through your own mobile phone by use of a QR code, a text message or by arranging for a telephone call. 

All our fundraising representatives have had comprehensive training on adhering to social distancing guidelines, on the use of their visors and on hygiene and coughing and sneezing etiquette. C3’s codes of conduct have been updated in this regard and comply with Charities Institute Ireland’s Covid-19 Return to Work Guidelines for Face to Face Fundraising. 

How can I be sure the person at my door is a legitimate fundraiser?

Genuine Temple Street fundraisers will carry an ID badge with them at all times. It will be properly printed, not photocopied or hand written. They will also be wearing a Temple Street branded jacket and have several copies of The Miracle Club welcome pack to hand. If you have any doubts at all, ask the fundraiser for more information – a genuine fundraiser will be happy to answer questions and explain more about Temple Street’s work. If you are still concerned please feel free to contact us directly on (01) 878 4344 or by email at: info@templestreet.ie and put your mind at ease.

How are monthly donations used?

Monthly donations allow us to plan for the future, ensuring the needs of the hospital are met. Funds raised through the Miracle Club go towards purchasing vital life-saving equipment, developing new services, innovative technology and funding life-changing research. For every €1 donated, 5c is spent on administration and governance costs.

Can I make a monetary donation?

Our fundraisers only ask for regular gifts via direct debit and are not authorised to accept one-off cash gifts. If you would like to make a donation, please click here

What time do fundraisers start and finish?

Door-to-door fundraisers work Monday to Friday between the hours of 12:00pm and 8:30pm and on Saturdays from 12.00pm to 6.00pm as this is when most people are at home. Street fundraisers will be out and about between 11am and 6pm Monday to Friday.

Are my personal details and banking details shared with anyone?

No, all data is encrypted and when you do pledge your monthly support your personal details are transmitted securely in compliance with industry standards. 

Why does Temple Street use a third party supplier?

Running a year-round face to face fundraising campaign requires an extensive amount of resources and expertise. We are partnering with C3 on this campaign, who have worked successfully with charities in Ireland, speaking to people like you about setting up monthly direct debit donations.   

Who should I contact if I want to cancel my direct debit?

You can contact Temple Street Foundation directly on 01 878 4344 to cancel or reduce your direct debit amount. We would also advise that you must cancel it directly with your bank.
