Datasets (Open Data)

A team of volunteers extracted data from the 2012 annual financial reports of 24 of the largest charities in Ireland (1Mil+€) and have made this data available as “Open Data”. While, these datasets may only represent a small sample of the thousands of charities in Ireland, they do however go some way towards demonstrating transparency, particularly in regard to  “How Charities are funded” and “Where the money is spent”.

We hope that these inputs can be built upon by other volunteers/groups thus helping us to achieve the aim of informing the public that there are well run Open & Transparent Charities, who need continued public support to provide vital services and simultaneously encourage the Charity Sector to become more transparent by publishing their reports in an open data format.
