Fundraising

We fundraise to support transport, housing, events and therapies.

Since 2004, together we have been hugely successful in contributing towards making the Carmona Services campus and community the success that it is today.  Indeed, without the efforts of our families and friends, much of what our community may take for granted would otherwise not exist today.

Together, since 2004, under the outstanding efforts and coordination of the Fundraising Committee of the Parents, Families & Friends Executive, we have Invested in excess of €948,000.

Where your money goes

How different would the landscape of Carmona Services be without your efforts and contribution? Imagine, if you can, a campus without The Hall, without Oasis, without the Therapy Pool.  In 2008 the PF&F funded in excess of a €250,000 for the refurbishment of Kildarton (Early Services for Pre-School age) and a further €70,000 towards the refurbishment of Ravenswell (Bray).

In 2018 and 2019 we have supported new sensory rooms in Kildarton and at Pottery Road. We have supported assistive communications technology for Carmona School.

Congratulations to all our Parents, Families and Friends. A heartfelt applause and clap on the back is deserved by all. Since 2004, together we have been hugely successful in contributing towards making the St. John of God Carmona Services campus and community the success that it is today.  Indeed, without the efforts of our families and friends, much of what our community may take for granted would otherwise not exist today.

Fundraising in the new economic climate has become more challenging, but we are pleased to say that many more parents and families are becoming involved and have contributed towards making the difference and minimising the otherwise potentially catastrophic impact.  In an ideal world, funding would be provided for the facilities and services which our Intellectually Disabled community need, but the reality is that it has always been the efforts of the family members and friends that have made the difference.  In recent years it has taken more effort by more people to maintain the much needed flow of funds.  “A little by many” has been a successful format for our community for many years, and we constantly rely on our families and friends to keep up the effort.
