Islamic Relief Worldwide (IRW) has raised more funds in a three-year period than any other mid-cap charity in the UK. The Charity 250 Index has placed IRW top of the list of all charities with published accounts (and an annual income of up to £40 million) between the years 2005 and 2007.
“This is recognition of the generosity of our supporters and the concern they have for those in need around the world. This period saw some major disasters including the Asia earthquake and tsunami which led to some of the largest emergency response and rehabilitation programmes in our 25 year history. None of this would have been possible without the commitment of all our staff and volunteers,” said Saleh Saeed, CEO of Islamic Relief.
The Charity 250 Index measures the income trends of charities in the UK, looking specifically at voluntary income from individual donors. This is the first time IRW has entered the Charity 250 Index which also considers the quality of reporting and clarity of published accounts. Although a global charity, IRW has topped the list because a large portion of its income is from UK donors.
