Why Fundraise?

Pieta is 80% funded by fundraising events like Darkness Into Light. Last year, we raised over €4 million for people impacted by suicide and self-harm. Without our Darkness Into Light Supporters, Pieta couldn’t provide vital services to people impacted by suicide and self-harm for FREE. You can learn more about Pieta services here https://www.darknessintolight.ie/about/about-pieta-other-services. 

Every person that registers will automatically receive a fundraising page. This page is here to support you with your Darkness Into Light fundraising. Share your page with friends, family, colleagues, and community members and ask them to donate to your page. Fundraising is an great way to increase your involvement in DIL and support even more people impacted by suicide and self-harm. We have some great fundraising tools and tips here: https://www.darknessintolight.ie/fundraising-tools 

Remember, every euro you raise contributes to a Pieta services. As little as €12 can answer one call to our 24-hour crisis helpline. You can make a real impact.
