The data set includes >20,000 Irish organisations that fall within an internationally-recognised definition of civil society. They are voluntary, constituted on a not-for-profit basis, independent of government, autonomous in their governance and established to some meaningful degree.

Benefacts, which itself is a civil society organisation - has identified the data set using internationally-recognised classification norms. It has derived the data set from more than ten distinct regulatory sources, drawing on open data files and other documents published by Irish regulators and other government authorities.

Besides the name and address of each nonprofit, the data set includes:

  • the names of the regulators with which each nonprofit is registered and their respective registration numbers

  • a sub-sectoral classification assigned to each nonprofit by Benefacts (using a localised version of internationally-recognised classification standards)

  • a link to the listing for each entity published by Benefacts on its public website

Benefacts relies on public sources of data - not all of it available in open formats - to build its database. Sometimes data is derived from more than one source, and the currency of information can vary. Using the best data available at the time, Benefacts updates its open datasets daily.
