Plan Ireland is a registered charity in Ireland (charity number CHY15037) and is constituted as a company limited by guarantee (company number 359578).
One of 20 national organisations working for the rights of children, families and communities in some of the world's poorest countries, Plan Ireland is internationally associated with Plan International, Inc. ('Plan Inc').
This structure allows Plan to invest as much of our funds in development projects as possible, which directly supports the beneficiary children, their families and communities, whilst keeping costs at a minimum and reducing the risk of duplication.
Last year Plan raised over €500 million globally, primarily through child sponsorship. Sponsorship is a stable and predictable source of income, which means we can plan and carry out long-term development projects.
