The Irish people are among the most generous in the world. However, it won't come as a surprise to learn that giving levels have dropped dramatically in the last few years.
The One Percent Difference is a new way of giving that enables everyone to give regardless of their financial situation.
The idea is simple. It doesn't matter who you are or what you do, we all give the same – 1%.
It's one percent of you. One percent of your time or one percent of your income, to a charity or cause you believe in.
Where did it come from?
The One Percent Difference is a campaign created by Philanthropy Ireland, the independent association of philanthropic organisations in Ireland.
The goal is to raise giving levels across the board in Ireland. It sounds like an impossible goal but it is actually very achievable.
The campaign is jointly funded by the Atlantic Philanthropies and the Department of the Environment, Community and Local Government.
