Information Seminar on Funding for Community Projects

Community Leaders hear how to access funding for their community projects from Clann Credo Community Loan Finance, Grants and Fundraising at seminar co-hosted by Dublin City PPN and Clann Credo, Wood Quay Venue, Dublin  24th October 2017

Clann Credo, Ireland’s leading Community Loan Finance Provider, came together with Dublin City Public Participation Network (PPN) to co-host a free information evening on Tuesday at the Wood Quay Venue in Dublin’s Civic Buildings.

The seminar was aimed at community and voluntary groups, charities, social enterprises and amateur sports clubs who need finance and they heard about grants, fundraising and Clann Credo’s Community Loan Finance.

 Many community leaders have big dreams of what their organisations could do, but finance is often an obstacle. Grants and Fundraising are part of the financing picture and Community Loan Finance from Clann Credo helps communities to maximise and boost these grants they receive. Clann Credo believes access to finance should not be one of the obstacles voluntary groups face.  

Clann Credo offers affordable interest rates with long term repayment schedules and does not ask for personal guarantees. Clann Credo has provided almost €90 M to over 900 community projects nationwide, transforming communities with facilities, services and jobs. They also offer two decades of experience in the community and voluntary sector.

Dublin City PPN is an independent network that provides a voice for all community and voluntary, environmental and social inclusion groups throughout the City.  The focus of the PPN is to empower and assist groups to participate in local decision making.

Jennifer Hennessy of Clann Credo spoke about how Community Loan Finance can transform communities. “It is our aim to ensure that community groups who can benefit from Clann Credo Community Loan Finance hear about us,” she said, “These projects have a big impact on communities and people’s lives.”
