OUR STORY

After research through the Centre for Nonprofit Management in Trinity College Dublin, it was clear that charities were not making adequate use of technology. ENCLUDE was then founded in 2006 by Eamon Stack and Ciaran Hayden as an infrastructure charity and received awards from Social Entrepreneurs Ireland in 2006 and 2007.

Since these early years, we have assisted over 1000 Irish charities to improve how they do their work through the application of appropriate technology that is tailored to suit their systems and processes. We are now the largest I.T. consultancy charity in Europe and continue to help other charities greaten their impact.
