The cost of the Skydive For Life is €275 and you will need to raise an at least an additional €275 to go to YSPI so you will need to fundraise a Minimum Target of €550.
Once you reach this minimum fundraising target you will need to return any money you’ve raised offline to Youth Suicide Prevention Ireland. Most skydivers raise most of their money online so you should add this into your total.
You can, of course, raise more funds than the minimum amount required. You can also, if you wish, donate all of the funds raised to Youth Suicide Prevention Ireland and pay for the skydive yourself.
When we receive funds for your campaign we will send you an acknowledgement and a Donation Receipt from Youth Suicide Prevention Ireland.
Skydiving events are provided by the Irish Parachute Club. Anyone over 18 can take part in this Skydive Experience, or if you're between 16 and 18 you will need parental consent.. For more information see Skydive Regulations
If you would like to organise a group event it couldn't be simpler. Just give us a call with a list of your group's names, emails and mobile numbers and we will add them to the system for you. Each group member will get their own page but we can combine the group funds as well. If you would like to organise a larger group than 10 please call us to discuss your plan as we may need to make special arrangements.
The advantage of these Personal Campaign pages is that all funds sponsored or donated come directly to us and we don't have to pay a percentage to anyone for processing the payments. Using our Personal campaign Pages means that 100% of the funds you raise will come to YSPI.
With a Personal Campaign Page you can collect sponsorship online by sharing the link to your Campaign Page on Facebook, Twitter, email etc. All sponsorship donations are made through Stripe, PayPal, ApplePay or GogglePay and are secure. You can also notify us that you are sending funds to us by bank transfer or cheque and the funds total will be added to your raised amount.
Anyone over 16 can register for the Skydive Experience. If you are aged between 16 and 18 you can still register if you have the consent of a parent or guardian to take part. Your parent or guardian will need to complete a consent form at the airfield on the day of your jump or you will not be able to participate.
If you have a problem logging into the system please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will reset your password.
We automatically give you 6 months to fundraise for theSkydive For Life 2019 but you can ask us to extend the authorisation period for another 6 months if required.

Most participants take around six months to fundraise but some take less or more than that. You're in control and you can organise any fundraising to suit your circumstances.
As of October 2018 our administrative overhead is around 12%.

We have only two salaried staff and all our services and administration are provided by volunteers. All our Trustees and Managers are volunteers and receive no remuneration for their duties.
