Fundingpoint for Councils & PPNs

As anyone working for a County or Town Council or a PPN will be well aware, local community and voluntary groups are currently in dire need of funding. Demand for the services that they provide is rising - and yet funding has been cut in so many areas.

The Fundingpoint Local Digest has been developed to help alleviate the burden on local authorities / PPN's to provide these groups with funding. By drawing on a well-established body of funding research, Fundingpoint can provide local nonprofit groups with detailed information about viable alternative sources of funding to which they could apply.

What You Get

  • 6 issues of the Fundingpoint Local Digest tailored to your local authority, detailing local, national and EU/international funding opportunities applicable to Irish nonprofits. Download a sample digest here.

  • Access to The Wheel’s funding helpdesk where the team will provide timely and expert fundraising advice and assistance to all organisations in your local authority area via email or phone.
  • Annual Subscription to the Fundingpoint database with full login details for the local authority (not for external usage).
