'Pitching 4 Pounds' launches at Stormont event


New programme 'Pitching 4 Pounds’ launched this week at our annual reception at Parliament Buildings. This is a new pilot project launched  by the Foundation which will award £15,000 to two successful charities, whose ideas impress the judging panel.
Brenda McMullan, Halifax Foundation for Northern Ireland Manager, said: “We are very excited to be launching this latest programme and can’t wait to see charities come up with new ideas to help deprived communities in Northern Ireland.”
Jim McCooe, a Foundation Trustee and Lloyds Banking Group Ambassador for Northern Ireland added: “Lloyds Banking Group is extremely proud to support the Halifax Foundation for Northern Ireland.  The work that the Foundation does makes a difference to thousands of people in need right across Northern Ireland, and it sits right at the heart of our ambition to help Northern Ireland to prosper.
The new programme was announced during an annual reception at Parliament Buildings celebrating the work of all of the charities that have received funding from the Foundation.
In its latest round of funding the Foundation supported 313 charities with grants of £972,353. A grand total of £34.8m has been distributed to more than 9,000 projects during the Foundation’s 32 year history.
