We understand the importance of supporting our community and this has always been practically demonstrated through our donations to, and sponsorship of, a wide range of community groups. As a local, member owned organisation, First Choice Credit Union Ltd has a strong commitment to supporting organisations and initiatives that benefit the local community.

Individuals, groups or organisations applying for sponsorship must complete the official entry form stating why they should qualify for sponsorship. Completed application forms, together with any supporting documentation, must be returned to any of our branches in Achill, Balla, Ballyhaunis, Castlebar, Kiltimagh or Swinford. Applicants must be from within First Choice Credit Union’s common bond, and must be for projects that benefit the local area.

Funding Applications should fulfil a recognised need and benefit to the community as well as be relevant to the majority of First Choice Credit Union membership.
