Benevity

Learn how you can support Paper Trail through Benevity.

Benevity, the international charitable donation and volunteer management company, has welcomed Paper Trail onto its corporate social responsibility platform.

Benevity’s Community Impact Portal links corporations, employees, and their families with vetted nonprofits that are driving positive change across the world.

Corporations that use the Benevity platform include global brands such as UPS, Levis, and Visa.

Paper Trail supports victims and survivors of the conflict in Ireland and Britain.

The charity’s legacy archive research has featured in documentary films and made headline news, helping hundreds of families find information that was withheld from them for decades. This new evidence has then been used in scores of legacy cases including more than 40 inquests and a historic Supreme Court case.

Paper Trail also shares with victims and survivors the skills it has developed over the last decade including legacy archive research and recording lived experiences.

Paper Trail has secured future European Peace Plus funding for its project work so any funding the charity attracts through Benevity will help to cover our operational costs and the digitalization of our historic work.

Similarly, Benevity volunteers can now support the charity through their film-making, web content development, and search engine optimization skills.

Information recovery and oral history are key components of dealing with the legacy of the conflict in Ireland and Britain. Victims and survivors also know how important these are to their family campaigns and their own mental and physical well-being.

Ciarán MacAirt BA MBA CMgr FCMI manages Paper Trail. He works closely with researchers, human rights lawyers, and activists across Ireland and Britain.

Ciarán (below right) is a published author and human rights campaigner. Paper Trail evolved from his forensic research into his own grandmother’s murder during the conflict. Over the past decade, he helped other families access information critical for their own campaigns and human rights cases.

His legacy archive research features in headline news, in documentary films, and in his highly regarded books, The McGurk’s Bar Bombing and Trope: Essays and Articles.

In 2011, he presented his research as evidence to the powerful U.S. Helsinki Commission in Washington D.C. Since then, he has led delegations to the Irish, British, and European Parliaments and spoken on victims' rights.

Ciarán says:

"The mechanisms which the state provided for truth recovery have failed most of us. Ordinary families are entitled to information about loved ones they lost during the conflict in Ireland and Britain over the last half-century. Access to this information is denied to them or it is hidden from them for decades. Paper Trail and our legacy archive research developed from this very human need to know."
