“There’s no place like home…”
The Wizard of Oz
Add your name, or that of a loved one, to a seat in our newly refurbished Cinema 1!
Seat naming is a fantastic way to demonstrate your own passion for film, celebrate the memory of someone who appreciated the IFI during their lifetime, or mark a special occasion with a unique gift. We very much welcome support from our corporate community too. The plaques have been designed by local artists Fiona Snow and Michael Mohler of SNOW Studio.
Whether celebrating a wedding, wishing a happy birthday, announcing a new arrival, or looking for an alternative Christmas present – dedicating a seat to a friend or family member is a lasting way to show that you care. As part of the package the naming can commence at a date of your choosing and we will provide a certificate, which we can send directly to the recipient or forward on to the purchaser to use at their discretion.
The refurbishment of our unique 18th century building is a big undertaking and your support will go towards the cost of the renovations. As a charity, it also means that we can continue to channel our revenues into our not-for-profit activities, developing our extensive education programmes across the country and ensuring the preservation of our moving image heritage through the work of the IFI Irish Film Archive.
€300 will see your name in our cinema for the next three years. If you are a business, you can also join at the level of €500 for three years.
Once you have made your booking, our team will be in touch with next steps for your details and to talk to you about how you can add an additional €134.78 to your donation at no extra cost through tax relief.
In the case of corporate donations, your company may claim a deduction for the donation as if it were a trading expense or an expense of management. For example, if your company is taking a seat, that is a €500 donation to the IFI, assuming a corporation tax rate of 12.5%, relief to your company is €62.50. While the IFI has the benefit of €500, the cost to your company of making the donation is only €437.50. Your company will simply claim a deduction for the donation as if it were a trading expense or an expense of management.
The IFI is an approved body for tax relief:
The IFI is supported by The Arts Council
