Donations

All income from donations to Mermaid Arts Centre is allocated for the creation of new work and the support of artists.

As Mermaid is a registered charity your contribution can go even further.

The Charitable Donation Scheme allows tax relief on qualifying donations made to eligible charities and approved bodies.

If an individual makes a donation of over €250 in the year, the charity or approved body can claim a refund of tax paid on that donation by the donor.

If a company makes a donation of over €250 in the year, the company can claim a tax deduction as if the donation was a trading expense.

There is a four year time limit for making a claim under this scheme.

For further Information please visit revenue.ie.

Donate to Mermaid

If you are just feeling generous and want nothing more in return than the knowledge that you are supporting and encouraging the arts and creativity in your community you can make a donation by calling 01 2724030 or donate here online. As Mermaid is a registered charity your contribution can go even further.

Self-assessment

A self-employed individual receives tax relief on the donation via his/her tax return. For example a donation of €250 means a real cost to you of €200 if you are paying tax at the lower rate or €145 at the higher rate.

Corporate donations

Companies can treat the donation as a trading expense thus reducing the real cost.

PAYE taxpayer

Did you know your contribution could go even further at no extra cost to you? We can claim back the tax on any donations over €250 over the course of the next tax year. If you are paying tax at the higher rate of 42%, €250 from you is worth €431.03 or €312.5 if you pay tax at the standard rate. That means more funds available to us to create an even better programme of events for you!
