Appendices.

While raising money is important, and I was proud of the amount that we raised, the challenge also generated a huge amount of public awareness about what Jigsaw does. In the end, even if it got just one person to look at the Jigsaw website for help, then the challenge was worth it.

Joanne Treacy, Jigsaw Supporter who
conquered Ireland’s 26 mountains over
ten days to raise funds for Jigsaw.

Where our funding comes from and how we use it.

At Jigsaw, we believe it’s fundamentally important to be open about how we are funded and how those funds are used to support the mental health of young people across Ireland. We categorise income and expenditure in line with the categories as per the Statement of Recommended Practice (SORP): Accounting and Reporting by Charities 2015, as issued by the Charities Commmission (for England and Wales) and the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator.

As a charity seeking donations from the public, we follow the Statement of Guiding Principles for Fundraising as set out by the ICTR (Irish Charities Tax Reform Group). You can see below where our funding came from during 2015 and how we used it to support the mental health of young people across Ireland.
