When it comes to making a lasting impact with charity giving, many people like the ‘set and forget’ approach. Most don’t even realise the benefits of regular giving can stretch far beyond
their own convenience.
Regular payments are a huge help to the Ethiopiaid Ireland team. Knowing we have a guaranteed income each month helps us plan ahead and respond quickly to our partners needs.
Setting up a regular gift is easy and can be set up at an amount and frequency that suits you. There are three ways to set up your regular Direct Debit:
Terms and conditions: When setting up your regular gift, please allow 15 working days before the date of your first gift. We can only accept one Direct Debit per donor. You can alter your gift amount, change your bank details, frequency, or cancel your Direct Debit at any time if your circumstances change.
Make monthly donations to Ethiopiaid Ireland straight from your pay! Donations are taken from employees’ pre-tax salary every month, making ‘give as you earn’ a very tax efficient way to donate money, and proving us with a more predictable income that has huge significance for our work.
By setting up a regular donation through your workplace and paying before your taxed, you essentially maximise the value of your gift.
For Ethiopiaid, regular giving via salary provides a steady income and this is really important. It allows us to plan more long term projects that help those in need in Ethiopia. It also enables us to identify how much we can allocate towards specific projects, and the numbers of people in need we can help.

Your regular gifts are so important to us and so simple to set up.
A legacy gift has the power to transform lives in Ethiopia, and with it, create lasting change in a community.
