The Society of St. Vincent de Paul could not do our work without the support and the generosity of the public. We have seen how one small thing can tip a family into a cycle of poverty and crisis, But the opposite is also a true. A little bit of help at the right time can change everything. By donating to SVP you can be there just when a family needs it You can stop them from falling into that cycle. You can help save them from a life of poverty.
Income for the Society of St. Vincent de Paul Is received from three main sources: donations from the public, sales from our community charity shop network and Government grants for Special Works (i.e. resource centres). The core work of the Society, home visitation and direct assistance is funded almost entirely from public donations.
In 2020, fundraised income for SVP totalled €41,761,000 due to the continued generosity of the Irish public.
While visitation remains the core work of the Society, we also provide many other essential services throughout the country including;
Calls for assistance from people in need is increasing year on year. In 2020 we received over 171,000 requests for assistance.
