Busy summer for Halifax Foundation for Northern Ireland

It was a busy summer for Halifax Foundation for Northern Ireland 
 
Almost £200,000 was committed by Halifax Foundation for Northern Ireland through its Community Grant Programme between June and August 2016 to support 54 community organisations throughout Northern Ireland. The organisations supported represent a wide range of bodies including Social Enterprises, Youth Clubs, Addiction Support Groups, Women`s Centres, Parent Teacher Associations, Cancer Support Groups, Family Resource Centres and Football Clubs. 
 
Among other goals, the grant aid will help underfunded grassroots charities to provide recreational activities for adults and young people in rural areas, to recruit new volunteers, to sustain a continuous employment of vital workers and to cover the rent of their premises. 
 
We are particularly delighted by a large number of successful applications coming from volunteer led organisations for whom it was a first funding aid ever secured. Speaking with the applicants, we were amazed by a number of people willing to give their time for free to help their local communities.  We hope that this modest grant aid will help these small charities develop confidence and expertise which will allow them to secure other funding opportunities. 
 
The Halifax Foundation for Northern Ireland operates a rolling grant programme, to apply for our grant aid, please follow instructions on this website or give us a ring during office hours.
