Honest. Effective. Transparent.

I am truly grateful to all of Threshold’s supporters. Every time you make a much-needed gift to Threshold, you place your trust in us to be honest, effective and transparent. That’s a trust we must constantly earn and value.

As Chairperson of Threshold, I promise our supporters that:

Your donation will be put to work on the frontline: I can guarantee that your donations are invested into providing frontline services to people experiencing housing problems and those at risk of homelessness. In addition, we work to influence government policy so that tenants can be protected.

We run a lean organisation: Threshold is a lean organisation, with high levels of transparency and accountability. Out of our annual income, our non-service related spending is just 10 per cent. This includes items such as CEO and Financial Controller salaries, governance and administration costs.

Threshold accounts are available and accessible: You can find our most recent annual accounts here. In our 2013 audited accounts, we received an income of €1.3 million in statutory grants, while €389,000 was raised through donations from the public.

We will be responsive: We will keep you informed about the wonderful work that your donations make possible. You are welcome to ring or email us with any questions about Threshold’s work                     at 1890 43 44 45 or

Your gift fights homelessness: I can promise you that we will never forget that people who are homeless and those on the brink of homelessness are our number one priority.

Thank you again for your support.
