2022 Community Fund
We love giving back to our local community!
Croí Laighean Credit Union is dedicated to supporting and funding initiatives that benefit and support people within our Common Bond. That’s why we created the Community Fund – an initiative designed to help local clubs and organisations to prosper and achieve their goals.
In the last 5 years, we have contributed over €533,000 to the local community and this year, we are once again providing €50,000 to support local clubs and voluntary organisations in our local community.
