The Charities Act For Charity Trustees (eLearning)

Target Audience

New Board Members, Directors, Charity Trustees of non-profit organisations.


Many thousands of non-profit organisations in Ireland are also registered charities. This means these organisations meet ‘The Charity Test’ and can thus be entered onto the register of charities in Ireland by the Charities Regulator.

The board members of non-profit organisations that are also registered charities are referred to as charity trustees. A list of the trustees for each registered charity in Ireland is publicly viewable on the Charities Regulator website.

Charity trustees must ensure that their charities comply with their obligations under the Charities Act 2009 and the related reporting and compliance obligations set out by the Charities Regulator.

This course can be accessed for up to 60 days after purchase.
