As the premier network for non-profit organizations in Ireland, ActiveLink.ie offers information about volunteering, jobs, tenders, fundraising, non-profit funding, training, events, and publications. The website offers two newsletters which are sent by email each week. The first is called “Community Exchange” and it covers recent news and information about Events and Training with regards to Non-Profits in Ireland. The second newsletter is called “Activelink” and it provides information and resources about Volunteering and Non-Profit Jobs.
The ActiveLink.ie website provides an extensive directory of non-profit organizations in Ireland in their “Irish Links” section, which was launched in 2001. It was the first online directory of its kind for Ireland and the organizations listed in “Irish Links” were brought together by a common purpose: “to bring about positive change in society.” This section of ActiveLink.ie offers the organizations’ names, mission statements, aims and objectives, areas of work, postal addresses, phone and fax numbers, email addresses, and website addresses. Visitors may browse the organizations alphabetically or by category. Non-profits which would like their organization listed on ActiveLink may submit their details via the email address provided on the Irish Links page.
Other resources available on ActiveLink.ie include free software for personal and non-profit organization use, a FAQ on revenue and charities, guidelines for organizations who work with volunteers, the RBK code of best practices for fundraising, tools for training and working with volunteers, corporate social responsibility details, as well as world and media rss feeds.
