News & Events

Carmichael, in partnership with a number of Volunteer Centres and Waterford PPN, are organising a series of free workshops for non-profit organisations on “Developing your Annual Report”.

The aim of this practical hands-on workshop is to understand the preparation of the Annual Report from the perspective of the Board Members, Directors, Trustees.

Each workshop covers the basics of what is required in an annual report and then focuses on how to use the annual report as a way of showing the public, your members and funders how good your organisation is. The session will involve presentations and working in groups. These workshops are aimed at smaller charities (annual income of less than €250,000), particularly, at charities with income of less than €50,000.

The workshops are free thanks to the support of Community Foundation Ireland.

For more details and to register, contact the relevant Volunteer Centre or PPN.
