Tax Effective Giving
Tax effective giving means you can make your donation go even further!
As a charitable organisation, Cork ARC can claim tax back on charitable donations over €250 made by any tax payer in a calendar year.
A rate of 31% is applied to all donations over €250. This means a €250 donation attracts a tax rebate of €112, increasing the value of your donation by 45% to €362.
By simply completing a CHY3 tax relief form you can help Cork ARC Cancer Support House claim tax relief on your donation from the Revenue Commissioners at no extra cost to you. An enduring certificate (CHY3) is valid for a period of 5 years, unless you cancel it before the end of that period.
If you pay tax and you give more than €250 in a calendar year, we can reclaim the tax paid on your donation(s). This only applies to personal gifts, and not to funds raised through sponsorship.
Your donation can be made as a once-off gift or by instalments. For example, a monthly gift of €21 per month over 12 months totals €252, and qualifies for the tax relief scheme.
You can download a CHY3 Enduring Certificate below, and use our tax relief calculator to see how much your donation will be increased by when you return a completed CHY3 form to us.

The minute I walked in the door of Cork ARC, I felt a peace come over me. The house gave me a place where I could feel supported and safe.
I walked a lot and was very fond of exercise, but I had never been to the gym. Being with other guys at the ‘Get Active’ programme really turned my life around. It’s like a new beginning.
You could be sitting at home, saying you don’t want to do it, but the confidence Cork ARC gives you rubs off and you just end up doing it with the group.
I could never draw or paint, yet Art Therapy allowed me to express more than I ever could have in words. I loved the freedom to play with the art materials.
The minute I walked through the door I knew I had done the right thing, I felt myself relax.
It helped to know that my grief is normal and that other people experience similar feelings.
