Make a Donation
Only 15% of people in Ireland with Osteoporosis are diagnosed, leaving 280,000 without a diagnosis. Your donation will go toward making a significant difference to the care we can provide.
The IOS Charity runs the National Osteoporosis Helpline and the National Osteoporosis website. The charity assists those diagnosed with Osteoporosis, those at risk and carers of people living with Osteoporosis.
The Charity receives €4,252 a year from the Heath Service Executive (HSE). All other funds must be raised to cover the cost of all services. Since only 15% of people are diagnosed, your donation will make a significant difference to us.
To donate to the Irish Osteoporosis Society using your credit card, please use the DONATE button on our website.
Cheque or Postal Order:
Please make your cheque or postal order payable to:
Irish Osteoporosis Society
1B Clonskeagh Square
Rather than sending a once-off donation to the Irish Osteoporosis Society, you may wish to spread your gift throughout the year by setting up a direct debit. This type of donation is very valuable to the IOS as it allows us to plan projects into the future.
For more information on setting up a direct debit, please call 01-637 5050 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tax Relief on Donations:
If you are a PAYE taxpayer, you can make your donation to the Irish Osteoporosis Society stretch even further. We can claim back tax on gifts at the donor’s highest rate of income tax.
With the government’s scheme of tax relief, people who gift over €250 in any given tax year will see their donation grow by as much as 72%.
Therefore, if you are able to donate €250 in any one year, we can then claim back your tax at the end of the year allowing your donation to grow to €430 if you are in the higher tax bracket, or €315 if you are in the lower bracket.
If you wish to do this, please fill out a simple form which we will send to you.
For more information: e-mail us at email@example.com or view the Revenue’s website.
Note: Companies and self-employed people may register gifts to Charities as tax-deductible expenses.
