The IMNDA has welcomed the commencement of the Charities Regulatory Authority (CRA). The CRA, Ireland’s national statutory regulatory agency for charitable organisations, is being established today (16 October) under the terms of the Charities Act 2009.
The establishment of the CRA is a very important moment for transparency for charities in Ireland. There is now a publicly available register of charities in Ireland which will be developed further in the coming months and which will provide people with clear information about what Ireland’s 8500 charities do, and how they raise and spend their funds.
