One of Ireland’s highest profile cancer charities, the Marie Keating Foundation, saw its income drop 30% last year. Income declined from €1.96 million in 2007 to €1.37 million in 2008.The fall in income, however, may be more a product of the Foundation’s good performance in 2007 than a downward trend, as income in 2005 and 2006 was around €1.3 million.The results for 2008 were also qualified by the charity’s auditors, PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), who said the audit was limited in scope as a result of difficulties establishing income from fundraising events, according to reports in the Sunday Tribune.
