Finances and Accountability

January 10, 2015

Early Childhood Ireland’s sources of funding are membership subscriptions, grant-in-aid and income from projects we undertake for Government and organisations that are aligned with our mission and vision. In line with funding challenges being faced by many not-for-profits, we strive to diversify our sustainable funding streams.

Our income is spent on our programmes, activities and information resources in line with the organisation’s goals and objectives. As a not-for-profit organisation we are keenly aware of ensuring value for money in everything we do. We work hard to achieve more with less. The Board presents an annual report and audited accounts for our members at our AGM (usually held in April/May). 




We are compliant with the Governance Code for Community, Voluntary and Charity Organisations in Ireland. Early Childhood Ireland is a Type C organisation and a copy of our Statement of Compliance is available here.
