This contributes to guaranteeing the independence of the organisation, which we believe is essential to the integrity of our work.
IPRT is fortunate to have the financial and other support of two main philanthropic funders: The Atlantic Philanthropies and the Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust.
In recent years, we have also secured project grant funding from other sources including: the Irish Research Council for the Humanities and Social Sciences (joint project with the Dublin Institute of Technology); the St Stephen's Green Trust; and the Community Foundation for Ireland.
IPRT believes in total transparency and accountability around how we use funding and donations to achieve our vision of progressive penal reform, with imprisonment as a last resort.
Audited accounts are prepared annually, and approved at the AGM each year. Financial statements for previous years are included in the Annual Reports, available here.
