Mary O’Kennedy and Bruce Tait have together launched the new recruitment company Charity Careers...
"Mary O' Kennedy has worked with Spinal Injuries Ireland since 2002 and has played a pivotal role in the success and growth of the Organisation. Mary's enthusiasm and willingness to give so much
of her focused attention and expertise to a project has meant that our fundraising and profile have gone from strength to strength" Colm Whooley, CEO, Spinal Injuries Ireland
"We employed O' Kennedy Consulting to advise us on the setting up of a new Charitable Foundation. We have been more than pleased with their performance and would happily recommend them to any other organisation" Brian Dunphy, Chairman, The Mercy Hospital Cork Foundation
"O'Kennedy Consulting carried out a review of Our Lady's Hospice fundraising operation and worked with us to develop a more strategic approach to our fundraising to ensure that we maximise potential
donor income while implementing best management practice in the area. We would happily recommend their services to other potential clients." Denis Maguire, Director of Finance, Our Lady's Hospice
“Mary O’Kennedy, of O’Kennedy Consulting, has provided invaluable support to St. Luke's Home in the establishment of our Foundation. Her knowledge and expertise of the charitable sector culminated in strategy and direction for St Luke's which has given our organisation a focus and a great basis to start from. We are delighted to continue working with Mary and her team into the future.” David O’Brien, Director of Finance, St Luke’s Home, Cork.
Health & Welfare
Health and Welfare issues are constantly at the top of our social and political agendas. Although funding is made available through the HSE and various government departments to charitable organisations operating in this field, substantial reductions have been made to many statutory funding sources and grants, so the need for further funding is both constant and growing.
O' Kennedy Consulting has substantial experience in advising organisations focused on this area whether their funding requirement is for capital development or service provision.
