How you can help

The Dublin Rape Crisis Centre originated in 1979 and since then has grown steadily in scope and effectiveness.

Three decades later, our constant problem is finance and we depend greatly on the generosity of the public to maintain our services. We work hard every year to fund-raise half a million euro which is the deficit after annual statutory funding. Our work would not be possible without the help of our generous benefactors, and we know that through all of us working together we can truly make a difference.

We greatly appreciate the public support and interest in our cause; it is deeply appreciated by all who benefit from this generosity.

All money raised from our fundraising events goes towards our counselling and therapy services.

How You Can Help

Former staff member Dacil Sanchez organised a mini marathon for the DRCC in Gran Canaria

The fundraising department has developed and grown over the years and most of our events are now annual dates on the fundraising calendar. These are very successful thanks, in large part, to the work of voluntary committees that help us to organize each event. All our volunteers give freely of their time and do not receive payment.

If you would like to get involved in any of our fundraising events, or help us to explore new ideas please contact Annie Gallagher or Colette Schutz on 66 14 911 or email
