Charity Commission will aid NI Trust research

When the Charity Commission for Northern Ireland finally gets its online register of charities up and running it will transform local grant-making research. Ironically, it is harder for us to see the full extent of a grant-making from a local Northern Ireland Trust than it is from an English or indeed American foundation. 

When the Charity Commission for NI publishes the annual accounts online of all Northern Ireland registered charities it will be possible for the first time to see the scope and scale of all Northern Ireland grant-making charities and not just those currently open and transparent. Roll on that day - you can be sure we will be quick to update GrantTracker with the new details, insights and hidden trusts.
