Support Us

All of our events are ‘donation only’, which means that we provide weekend-long retreats with accommodation, food, travel etc all included, without a fixed charge. We take seriously our motto of ‘Youth leading youth to the heart of the Church’, and we know from our own experiences and feedback over the years that maintaining this donation-only model is an essential part of our outreach because it means that no young people are excluded due to financial constraints.

This also poses a significant challenge, and we are incredibly grateful to our donors who in a very real way make the work of Youth 2000 possible. There are several ways to donate below.  Please do include your name so that we can stay in touch and remember you in our prayers and the Masses offered for our benefactors each month.

Whatever you can afford to give will make such a difference and you will make a real and significant contribution to the faith life of young people who could not otherwise attend, and so to the future of the faith landscape in Ireland. Youth 2000 is a registered charity and relies completely on donations and extensive fundraising to carry out its mission. We do not receive any official funding from any Church body or organisation.
