Giving up something to help others has been a feature of Irish life for centuries. "Small sacrifices come from a big heart" as the proverb says. A coffee, a pint, a bag of sweets, what we sacrifice doesn't matter.

A small Sacrifice

The cost of a coffee is a small amount to give but it all helps fund charitable work around the country..

Easy to Do

What are we sacrificing for...?

It's amazing how much charities can achieve with just a little help

Coffee Sacrifice was setup in 2015 as a fundraiser by Youth Suicide Prevention Ireland. It has been so successful that we have been requested many times to open the idea up to other charities, so here we are.

This year Coffee Sacrifices can be made to any registered Irish charity just by selecting the charity from the list below and making your coffee sacrifice

This is a free service that YSPI are providing and all your coffee sacrifices will go to the charity of your choice less 10% to cover payment costs

Charities spend a lot of time trying to find new and interesting ways of raising funds especially as government funding to many charities has been reduced so much over the last 6 years. Coffee Sacrifice came about in 2015 as a chance suggestion from a Secondary School student in Clontarf that he would gladly donate his coffee money if there was an easy way to do so.

Initially Coffee Sacrifice was just a text donation service run by LikeCharity but each year the popularity of the Coffee Sacrifice for World Suicide Prevention Day (10th September) has grown amongst the supporters and volunteers of YSPI. As a result we decided to throw the concept out there for supporters of other charities to use our Coffee Sacrifice system to sacrifice a coffee to a charity of their choice (or to YSPI should they be so inclined)

YSPI's role in is to open up our existing fundraising concept to supporters of other charities. We provide the infrastructure and payment gateway as well as insuring that donations are disbursed to charities in an auditable manner. We will be taking a small fee of 5% to cover the costs of gateway fees.
