Fundraising FAQs

Send a cheque or bank draft to LauraLynn Children’s Hospice, Leopardstown Road, Foxrock, Dublin 18 made payable to LauraLynn Children’s Hospice. Include your address so we can confirm your donation.

Or you can donate on our website or lodge directly to our bank account. (IBAN No: IE86 AIBK 9335 7003 2206 23 and Swift/Bic No: AIBKIE2D). Please send us an email to confirm your name and what event you fundraised for us. We will send you an acknowledgement that the transfer of funds was successful.

Please do not use Go Fund Me as a method of raising funds online. Funds raised through Go Fund Me go to your account, not to the charity directly. In that case, you would need to transfer funds to the charity after the event is complete. LauraLynn would ask all supporters to use online fundraising pages such as EverydayheroJust Giving or iDonate and the funds will go straight to LauraLynn. It’s very easy for you and us. Thank you for your support.

We ask that you allow 7-10 working days after your donation to receive your receipt. If you have fundraised online via an online website such as EverydayHero, Just Giving or Facebook, please allow 7-10 working days after your fundraising page has officially closed.

All donations received will help us to fund our care services for children with life-limiting conditions and their families. A core value underpinning the work of LauraLynn is our commitment to you as our supporter to be transparent and accountable for the funds you have so generously donated.

You will need to abide by all applicable legislation and apply for any permits/permission that may be required. If you are collecting or selling raffle tickets in a public area such as on-street or in a department store you will need to contact the local Garda station to apply for a collection permit. If applicable you may need to contact management for permission also. Copies of any permits should be sent to the LauraLynn Office.

Organisers are advised to ensure they have the relevant insurance and indemnity considered necessary for their event. Unfortunately, our insurance policy does not cover events conducted by external fundraisers. A copy of your event insurance policy should be sent to the Fundraising team.

We regret that there are certain items which are not suitable for donation, we unfortunately cannot accept the following:
