Dunshaughlin GAA Fundraising

Pitch Developments (Phase 1) – €565,000
Clubhouse Development (Phase 2) – €600,000
Total – €1,165,0000

 

The club are currently in the process of the biggest and most significant development in its history.  In 2010, work commenced on the new Astro Turf and full sized sand based pitch which was initially funded by the club’s cash reserves of roughly €265,000.  Recently the club has acquired a loan of €300,000 in order to fund the remainder of Phase 1 development. The current loan of €300,000 is fixed @ 4.7% for 15 years resulting in annual repayments of €28,000

Therefore the club must raise in excess of €28,000 every year to service the debt

Requirement of 2/3 major fundraising events to account for this, while weekly lotto caters for the day-to-day running of the club.  A second loan will be required in the coming years to complete Phase 2 – this will be additional to the Phase 1 loan and a separate fundraising plan will be required to fund this.  A number of new fundraising initiatives have been undertaken by the club in recent years.

2011 Fundraising Activities

Scrap Metal Connection – €17,000
Golf Classic – €10,000

 

Scrap Metal Collection:

On Good Friday last, the club held a Scrap Collection Day in conjunction with Scrap Dealer Felix Gormley.  On the day, the club gave the opportunity for the community to dispose of unwanted scrap and iron while at the same time raise much needed funds.  The event turned out to be a wonderful success as a total of 127 tonne was collected on the day and also at various other collections.  However, the nature of this fundraiser means that this is a once-off event and will not be repeated in the near future.  The club wish to thank everyone who helped out or donated on the day.
