Let’s Fund It (LFI) was set up in 2019 by four friends from Co. Limerick with the common goal to support registered Irish charities in their work.
LFI uses donated funds to purchase good(s) and/or service(s) on the charity’s behalf. In this way, LFI can ensure that funds it receives through donations are being spent directly to benefit Irish charities and their service users.
The inspiration for LFI stemmed from a desire to help these charities and their charity service-users in a clear, practical, and transparent way. LFI aims to achieve this is through more tangible means rather than direct financial donations.
LFI strives to keep administration costs as low as possible and reserves the majority of its funding for charitable donations. For example, in 2020, 99.2% of the expenditure of Let’s Fund It went directly to the purchase of good(s) and/or service(s) on behalf of charities.
The mission of Let’s Fund It is to offer support to Irish registered charities that align with its charitable purposes and that generally operate in the Munster area through the purchase of goods and/or services on behalf of these charities.
Let’s Fund It intends that the public benefit will lie directly with the service users of the charities supported.
Let’s Fund It will focus on supporting charities that align with its own four charitable purposes which are as follows:
- The prevention or relief of poverty or economic hardship,
- The advancement of community welfare including the relief of those in need by reason of youth, age, ill-health or disability,
- The promotion of health, including the prevention or relief of sickness, disease or human suffering,
- The prevention or relief of suffering of animals.
