Community support.

It’s about being a good neighbour.

Member First Credit Union proudly supports a variety of community activities – from local schools, education initiatives and literacy programmes to the arts,  community groups and sports clubs.

 

Local GAA Clubs

 

Just like ourselves, the GAA is at the heart of our communities and plays an important role in social and economic development. Each year we make a significant investment to a number of clubs.

 

  • Fingallians GAA Club
  • Parnells GAA Club
  • Clontarf GAA Club
  • Raheny GAA
  • Naomh Barróg GAA
  • St. Monica’s GAA
  • Whitehall Colmcille GAA

 

Local Soccer Clubs

 

As we recognise the benefits of participation in sport to individuals and to communities, we also support a number of local soccer clubs.

 

  • Home Farm FC
  • Kilmore Celtic FC
  • Villa Celtic FC
  • Swords Celtic FC
  • Artane Beaumont FC
  • St. Brendan’s United FC  

 

Community Groups and Organisations

 

These are just some of the groups that we supported in 2016/17. Pieta House, St. Francis Hospice, Donnycarney Beaumont Local Care Centre, Clancarthy Residents Association, St. John Ambulance, Near FM, O’Connell Musical Society, Swords Bridge Club, Raheny Tidy Village, Bonnybrook Parish, D5 Horticultural Society, Raheny Scouts, Artane School of Music, Donnycarney West Community Association, St. Brendan’s Parish, Grange Woodbine Seniors Club and Glasmore Park Residents Association.

 

School Savings Scheme

 

We operate a school saving scheme in over 30 local schools. The aim is to encourage children to adopt a regular savings habit at an early age, and in doing so, develop a sense of good financial management for the future. Participating schools receive an annual donation. If you’re interested, ask at any Member First Credit Union or your child’s school.

 

Defibrillators

 

Saving money is nothing compared to saving lives. We continue to sponsor the purchase of defibrillators and the training necessary for their proper use.

 

Car Draw. Are you in?  

 

We also offer members the chance to win prizes – including a brand new car – every month. And all for just €1 a week! If you’re interested, get an application form at any Member First Credit Union or download it here. Remember, you must be over 18 to participate.
