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 allocate your group it's own Skydive Day.
The cost of The Big Jump 2019 is €250 and you will need to raise an at least an additional €250 to go to YSPI so you will need to fundraise a Minimum Target of €500.
Once you reach this minimum fundraising target you will need to send the money you’ve raised – less €250 to cover the cost of your jump – to Youth Suicide Prevention Ireland. 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 the funds we will send you an acknowledgement and a Donation Receipt from Youth Suicide Prevention Ireland. Once you have the Donation Receipt you can contact us to book your Tandem Freefall Skydive from 3000 metres.
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 PayPal 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 before you can book The Big Jump 2019.
If you have a problem logging into the system please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will reset your password.
We supply you with an authorisation letter that is valid for 6 months but you can ask us to extend the authorisation period if required. How long you take to raise the funds or when you book you skydive experience are totally up to yourself. Most participants take around three 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.
Please note though that the weather is a big factor in the skydive experience and the later in the year it gets then the more likely that the number of skydive days available will be reduced.
As of October 2018 our administrative overhead is around 12%. This means that for every €1 we receive 88c goes towards our charitable objectives and just 9c goes to the administration of the charity.
We have no 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.
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.. Please note some other age, height and weight restrictions may apply to these events.
