Conradh na Gaeilge makes its largest support fund ever available for Seachtain na Gaeilge 2016 community events and campaigns
Community groups have two weeks left to apply to the largest support fund ever launched by Conradh na Gaeilge, thanks to the Community Foundation for Ireland granting €40,000 to Seachtain na Gaeilge this year. Grants of between €500 and €2,500 are available to groups organising community events and campaigns in Ireland for the 2016 festival through the Seachtain na Gaeilge 2016 Support Fund.
More information and the application form for the Support Fund is available at www.snag.ie/ciste and groups have until Monday, 1 February 2016, to apply for grants to run Seachtain na Gaeilge events and campaigns during the festival from 1 – 17 March 2016. Conradh na Gaeilge will announce the results shortly after this date and the grants will be paid to successful applicants by Friday, 19 February 2016.
Brenda Ní Ghairbhí, Seachtain na Gaeilge Manager said:
“There hasn’t ever been such generous funding made available for the Seachtain na Gaeilge fund before, so it’s an amazing opportunity for community groups to organise a special event or campaign for the 2016 festival that they may not have had the resources to organise in previous years.
“The application process is as easy and the form as user-friendly as possible, and we hope that the Seachtain na Gaeilge fund will make a real difference to community groups promoting the Irish language in their local areas.”
Applications to the Seachtain na Gaeilge 2016 Support Fund can be submitted by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by post to Ciste, Conradh na Gaeilge, 6 Sráid Fhearchair, Baile Átha Cliath 2, or you can look for more information by email@example.com.
