With no core funding, Burrenbeo Trust relies on the generosity of its supporters to make a difference.
Imagine a world where people are engaged with their environments and are actively engaged in caring for these; you can help make that happen. As a benefactor of the Burrenbeo Trust you will be part of an active community working together for the future of our heritage and landscapes.
Every place is special, with its own unique natural, built and cultural heritage. Most of our places benefit from having an engaged local community to look after them. By becoming a benefactor of the Burrenbeo Trust you are supporting an organisation that is focused on education, inspiring and connecting people to both the Burren and beyond, helping people identify their role in safeguarding their own place, and influencing researchers and policy makers dealing with heritage and landscape.
Support our work for the benefit of heritage, landscape and communities.
Your support will help us:
- conserve one of the world’s most unique and significant landscapes, the Burren;
- ensure that the Burren’s community old and young are informed and engaged about this unique landscape and it’s care;
- ensure that landscape is utilized sustainably for communities local and visiting;
- spread the model of place-based learning and community stewardship to inform pride amongst communities throughout Ireland as a means of encouraging sustainable conservation;
- actively work together for the best future for heritage and landscape nationally.

Did you know that being a Burrenbeo Partner was Tax Effective Giving?
Did you know that you can provide tax effective giving through PAYE & Self Assessment Tax Reliefs?
The Burrenbeo Trust is an eligible charity and is listed on Revenue.ie with an assigned Charity number (CHY No. 16834). From April 2001, tax relief has been available on donations of €250 or more in any one tax year to eligible charities from individual and corporate donors.
How much do you or your company have to give?
A minimum of €250 or more in one year either as a one off donation or as a monthly payment (equivalent to €20.83 per month) for example, through a standing order can be donated to the Burrenbeo Trust.
What does an individual have to do?
Very simply, complete either the CHY3 “enduring” form or the CHY4 annual form available from the Irish Revenue and return it to the Burrenbeo Trust, Glebe House, Glebe Road, Kinvara, Co.Galway. This will give permission to the Trust to claim a tax refund on your generous donations.
The CHY3 Enduring form will allow the Trust to receive the tax relief on your donation for 5 years and the CHY4 form will last only one year. Please download the forms here.
How much does the Burrenbeo Trust receive?
Using the new simpler tax relief measures from January 1st 2013, the Burrenbeo Trust will receive the tax relief on your donation. A new blended tax relief of 31% is the designated rate for this purpose. For example, a donation of €250 will be equivalent to €277.77 for the Trust.
For example, a PAYE or Self Assessed person donates €250 to the Trust – this will be grossed up by 31% and result in the Trust receiving €362.32.
Equally a donation of €500 will be grossed up to €724.64 (€500 + €224.64) and €1000 will be €1449.27 (€449.27).
