  • send cheques to us at Rare Diseases Ireland, Carmichael House, North Brunswick Street, Dublin 7, Ireland
  • transfer funds directly to our bank account. 

Did you know that if you donate more than €250 to Rare Diseases Ireland in any calendar year, we can claim a tax rebate benefit associated with this gift. Simply download and complete the Annual Certificate – CHY4 Certificate valid for a period of one year or the Enduring Certificate – CHY3 Certificate valid for a period five years. Return the completed form to us and we will do the rest!

Your donation enables RDI to advocate for changes in Government, Department of Health and HSE policy, strategy, planning and implementation on behalf of people living with rare conditions. Your donation allows us to hold those in positions of responsibility to account and to monitor implementation of strategies and operational plans that impact upon the lives of those living with rare diseases.
