About Us FAQs How does An Taisce receive funding? An Taisce as an organisational whole is funded from multiple sources. Importantly, An Taisce is made up of two branches, the Education Unit and the Advocacy Unit. The Education Unit receives restricted funding from State and other sources for specific initiatives in education, such as Green Schools. The Advocacy Unit as well as An Taisce’s general administration is funded from membership, philanthropic and commercial income. The costs of making observations, submissions and any appeals in relation to planning are exclusively resourced from advocacy and general funds. The breakdown of these funds is set out clearly alongside the organisation's Annual Report, which is published here.
