Explore the most comprehensive database of Irish civil society ever compiled.

Drawing on regulatory data from many sources, Benefacts brings you a unique overview of civil society organisations in Ireland today. This section provides an analysis of each sector, using an internationally recognised classification standard.

Use the charts to see the number of organisations in each sector, where those are based, how long they have been established, and how they are resourced. Follow the links to learn more about individual sectors or organisations.

Note that there may be government-operated or privately-owned organisations in each of these sectors, but Benefacts has no information about the number of these, or their profile.
