Why support us?

War and conflict cause hurt and trauma that can take generations to heal. A culture of fear and silence can envelop communities making them sceptical of the “other.” Without an impartial facilitator to begin the process of reconciliation they risk further segregation as deep divisions remain prevalent. The Glencree Centre for Peace and Reconciliation is an Irish NGO dedicated to transforming violent conflict and building peace in Ireland and internationally.

Our Finances

The Glencree Centre for Peace and Reconciliation is committed to being as transparent as possible. Our transparency is an important aspect in our endeavours to be an effective and accountable organisation. As we prepare our Annual Report you can find our Directors’ Reports and Financial Statements’ for 2015 and 2014 below.

Directors Report and Financial Statements 2014/2015

This year we are happy to report a Net Income of €71,765 which is our largest profit since 2009.

This result has been achieved by very tight management of resources and demonstrates how Will, Gerry and the team are committed to ensuring that the Glencree Centre for Peace and Reconciliation (GCPR) operates within its limited budget.

As a Board we are concerned to ensure that our Balance Sheet is solvent.  As a result of the strength of our assets, our Balance Sheet is strong but our Current Ratio – that is the difference between our Current Assets and Current Liabilities – is a negative figure.  This is an issue that is of constant concern to the Board.  I am happy to report that this year, this Current Deficit, at €176,552, is at its lowest point since 2010.  As a Board with help from members and friends, we are committed to turning this figure into a positive one in 2016 and beyond.
