Croí Laighean Credit Union is proud to launch their 2021 Community Fund. The Community Fund was set up five years ago to create a positive impact locally by supporting community-based projects that require funding. In that time, €200,000 has been given back to the community and over 100 voluntary organisations have benefited directly.
This year, the Fund will provide €50,000 to local clubs and organisations across the community.
Speaking at the launch Joanne Shelley, Head of Marketing at Croí Laighean Credit Union said, “Our community is at the heart of everything we do and we are delighted to support voluntary organisations through our 2021 Community Fund. We understand that fundraising over the last year has been difficult and so we encourage clubs to apply to the Fund. Don’t wait, apply today!”
Theresa O’Neill, Community Fund co-ordinator at Croí Laighean Credit Union said, “Over the years we have worked with all types of groups across the community from GAA, soccer & rugby clubs to meals on wheels; men’s & women’s sheds; youth clubs; first responders; parish groups; playgrounds; martial arts; snooker clubs and many, many more”.
Theresa continued, “the fund is open now until Friday, 2 July 2021 and we urge any voluntary group interested in funding to complete and submit an application form. If your club is not a member of Croí Laighean Credit Union, join us today to be eligible to apply to the Fund.”
To apply, complete and submit an application online @ www.clcu.ie/community-fund or visit a branch for an application form. All applicants will receive feedback by mid-August 2021 and Community Fund recipients will be announced thereafter.
