The RTA is the public sector arm of the RTE.

The Minister for Finance is the chairperson of the Council of Ministers. 

The RTA’s budget was last revised on June 25, 2018 and is €4.1 billion.

The corporation is the largest of its kind in Ireland.

It was established as a public corporation on February 18, 1915 and has the power to grant a number of grants to its members, the largest being the RTA Charitable Deduction Scheme. 

On February 28, 2018, the Corporation published the 2018-19 Annual Report.

The 2017-18 Annual Report, the latest quarterly report, revealed that the Corporation had received €1.5 billion of grants in 2018-2019.

It also announced that the corporation had received a grant of €1 million in 2019-2020 and that a grant was due in 2020-21. 

“We want people to be proud of who they are and the great things they do,” said Minister for Enterprise, Science and Research, Paschal Donohoe.

“We have got to make sure that we are doing everything we can to encourage people to give to charity, so that we can grow the economy and get people into work and then create a better environment for everyone.” 

“In 2018-20, there were around 10,000 people working in the public and private sectors in the Republic, representing over 1.8 million people. 

 A lot of people are looking for work, they are looking to put a roof over their heads, to look after their families and children and the good things that they can do. 

This is where the charity is important.

They help people out there who are struggling in a difficult economy.” 

The Minister for Arts, Heritage and Gaeltacht, Shane Ross, said that, “We are delighted to be able to provide the Government with the opportunity to make a charitable contribution, and it will enable a lot of organisations to give back to their communities.” 

In a recent letter to the Corporation, the Department of Justice said that the Charitable Deductions Scheme (CDDS) provided grants to organisations “with a strong commitment to community and social justice and a desire to contribute to the health, well-being and wellbeing of the people they serve”. 

The letter also noted that the CDDS “is open to organisations of all kinds, including for-profit, non-profit and charitable, which can apply and receive a grant”. 

“This is the first time we are seeing a significant amount of private enterprise involved in the development of the CDDs,” said Mr Ross. 

While the Corporation was set up to make donations to charitable causes, its charitable status can be revoked by the Minister for Justice in the event of failure to meet a statutory obligation. 

According to the Department for Justice, a charity’s “non-economic” activity can be assessed if it does not meet the statutory obligation to “provide assistance” to “community and social” organisations, “providing support for the general welfare of society”. 

It was also announced in the 2017-2018 Annual Report that the Department had made €6.7 million available to organisations, including the Corporation. 

A spokesperson for the Minister said the Department would continue to work with the Corporation on this issue and that the Government’s commitment to charities would remain intact. 

Public Sector Employees Union “The government needs to ensure that the RTC is an effective and efficient organisation, and that it is able to fulfil its statutory obligations to provide a wide range of grants, and we have been disappointed by the current situation. 

We will continue to push for reform,” said PSEU General Secretary John O’Neill. 

RTA’s Executive Director of Communications, Dr John Connolly, said it was important that the public servants were aware of the charity status and that they could apply for the charitable deduction. 

He said that he was “not in favour of making charitable donations to non-profits”. According to the Charities Register, the number of organisations receiving grants from the RTS is not known.
