Community Finance and Fundraising were the clear topics of interest to Leitrim PPN members when asked what your groups could use more information on.

We are hosting a Community Finance Information Session on Sept. 13th for all Leitrim PPN Members.

Where:      Lough Allen Hotel, Drumshanbo

When:       Thursday Sept. 13th, 2018 : 7 – 10 pm

The evening will take the form of short presentations from the speakers and then an opportunity to meet them individually for questions and/or follow up.

Topics covered will include LEADER Funding update, finance for community groups – bridge and loans, sustaining your community group, tips on completing applications, insurance for community groups and online banking and general tips on preventing fraud among others. A calendar of grants will be available based on the previous 12 months of grants released.
