At our AGM in 2013 to mark and celebrate our 50th year in operation, the members adopted a proposal to establish a community funding initiative. An initial fund of €100,000 was allocated for the first year in operation.
The basis of operation of the fund is that it is used to support worthy local projects for social, cultural, sporting or educational purposes. The Board of the Credit Union appointed a Committee and a set of rules and application guidelines were drawn up for the operation of this fund.
Funding applications between from €500 to €10,000 only will be considered. Funding is available for new and proposed projects but specifically excludes funding for any of the annual running costs of an organization or any project already completed. We invite all eligible organisations with a suitable project to apply to the fund for assistance with their particular projects.
