Very well! I guess you also care for ethical banking? Triodos might be an idea (triodos.com); Dutch, but operating in other parts of Euro (e.G. Germany) as well, I don’t know about Ireland.
In general, there’s the “The Global Alliance for Banking on Values” ( http://www.gabv.org/ ), but as far as I could tell, it doesn’t have an Irish member, either.
Then again, there’s the EU, there’s SEPA -> it’s probably not too hard to get an (additional) Dutch, German, Spanish… bank account.
For acceptation donations, it wouldn’t even have to be full-fledged - a “Tagesgeldkonto” (=German maybe ~‘savings account’?) would do.
All you want is:
Have an IBAN + BIC
Accept transfers (SEPA) from anyone
don’t accept debit from anyone
Have means to transfer the funds to a reference account (-> your regular Irish bank account).
Sorry in case I’m going to far – it’s always a little hard from me to find the line between “offering my help and knowledge/ideas” and “pushing my agenda”. But let it be said that I do care for ethical banking and have some (very German-centric) knowledge on that! ( Ya’ll do ask if I can be of help! )
My idea about banking is also very German-centric and from a private person view… I don’t know how those things transfer
- a. To a Business
- b… Through language and
- c. To different ways of doing banking (e.g. as far as I know in the US, it’s still quite common to pay via cheque – in Germany, this isn’t a thing at all anymore (my father would sometimes pay with a cheque, but that was ~ 20 Years ago)
