Support ICRI

There are currently no formal training courses in Ireland for the conservation of objects; students must travel abroad for specialised training.

ICRI is seeking financial support for its Education Bursary, awarded to Irish students to undertake full-time postgraduate courses overseas.

Your donation will make a real difference.

Your generous support will help ICRI raise the profile of conservation and help protect Ireland’s material heritage for the next generation. We are grateful for donations of any amount.

How to make your donation go further

By simply completing a form, you can help ICRI claim back tax from your generous donation.

This is because ICRI is authorised to operate the Charitable Donations Scheme (CDS) under Section 848A Taxes Consolidation Act 1997 until 12th October 2025.

The Institute is registered under tax reference no. 6578248Q.

You can sign either a CHY3 Enduring Certificate or a CHY4 Annual Certificate and send it to ICRI. On receipt of your details, we then submit a claim under the Donations Scheme through the Revenue On-Line Service [ROS].

How does the scheme work?

There are a number of conditions attached to donations eligible for tax relief purposes:

If you are a tax payer (self employed, PAYE or joint assessed) ICRI can claim tax relief on your donation from Revenue. Tax relief can be obtained from minimum donations of €250 up to €1,000,000 in any one year. ICRI may be able to claim up to 31% tax relief on your donation.

To permit ICRI to claim tax relief on your donation, we request you to sign either a CHY3 cert or a CHY4 cert.  

  • CHY3 cert lasts for 5 years; if you choose to support us over the next 5 years, ICRI can claim tax back without asking you to fill in another form every year, saving time. You are not obligated to donate every year if you sign this form.
  •  CHY4 cert lasts for one year; a new form is required to be completed each year you make a donation.
