As of 1st January 2018 we are no longer issuing Fundraising Certificates upon signing up to one of our events. Certificates are now only issued where a business may require confirmation from the charity that a genuine fundraising event is being planned, or for an application to An Garda Siochana for a collection permit.  We will need a scan or photocopy of photo ID such as a driver's licence in order to issue a certificate.

There were a number of issues in 2017 with fraudulent or inappropriate use of YSPI fundraisisng materials.  PLEASE NOTE that registration for fundraising events is solely at our discretion and we can refuse or cancel registrations if necessary.
