The Irish Discworld Convention is a not-for-profit organisation, which means that all profits beyond what we need to organise the next convention are donated to charity. On top of this, we also host several fundraising events (most notably our grand Charity Auction). The charities we will be supporting this time are:
The Alzheimer Society of Ireland, who have been the main recipient of our charity donations ever since the first Irish Discworld Convention – not just due to the “embuggerance” itself, but also because this charity helps so many Irish people in many ways, whether it's directly helping the sufferers of dementia and Alzheimer’s themselves, or by helping their friends and family come to grips with the seemingly-hopeless situation.
Two other local or national Irish charities will be selected and announced in due course.
