Our Four Goals

From life-saving emergency responses to life-changing development
projects and life-enhancing campaigning, we help communities to combat
poverty in three powerful ways. See what your support has made possible.


People Power Approach

People Power

Changing the rules that put people in poverty, creating new
opportunities for all and reducing the impact of climate change on the
most vulnerable.

Services for all approach

Services for all

Ensuring everyone has access to vital services like healthcare
and education, and making governments fulfill promises on aid and
reducing debt.

Care in Crisis

Care in crisis

Providing better protection and greater help to people in crisis
situations and strengthening their ability to withstand future
emergencies.

Equality Approach

Equality

When women and men are treated as equals everyone benefits. Women
have the right to make decisions for themselves and to be treated with
respect.

Emergency Approach


At Oxfam Ireland we are accountable to you.

When you donate, you're entrusting us with the responsibility to make your money work for people affected by poverty.

It's one we take seriously. Your support is vital to every aspect of
our work. That's why we're committed to openness and transparency.

We know it's important to you that your generous donation is spent
wisely with maximum impact on the lives of people affected by poverty
and injustice. It's important to us too.

Emergency Appeals.

100% of your donation goes to that specific response
fund, providing vital and practical supports such as clean water,
sanitation and cash vouchers for food. 

The specific response fund also covers the inevitable costs (a small
percentage) of running emergency appeals, e.g. shop posters and
fundraising buckets. These activities mean we can raise even more money
for the emergency response.

In emergency appeals, 100% of your donation goes to that specific response fund.  For
every other  £ received by Oxfam Ireland, 81% of the money goes
directly to our programme, 12% is spent generating future funds and 7%
is spent on administration and governance.

We ensure that all our activities are measurable, accountable and
realistic. Below you can find full information regarding where your
donation goes, CEO salary, overhead costs, how our board is appointed
and answers to other important questions too.

Every Other Euro/Pound Received.

For every other £ received, 81% goes on our core programme work,
12% is spent generating future funds and 7% is spent on administration
and governance. 

81%: Ensures we can provide:

(i) Emergency responses

(ii) Long-term development programmes 

(iii) Campaigning and advocacy that changes the policies and practices which cause poverty in the first place.

12%: Ensures we are doing everything we can to raise
funds from different types of donors and to let the public know about
our work. This has a high return on investment because it encourages
people to support what we do, meaning we can reach even more
communities.

7%: Ensures we work in the most effective and
efficient way, and that the money donated is spent wisely. Our financial
reporting is carried out to the highest international standards and our
full set of independently audited accounts are available below.
