Ulster Community Investment Trust (UCIT) is a Charity which has invested £6.9Million into over 70 sports clubs across Ireland, helping them deliver new training facilities, clubhouses and state-of-the-art pitches. Clients include GAA Clubs, Gymnastics Clubs, Football Clubs and other community- based organisations providing sporting and recreation facilities.
NI Sports Forum is partnering with UCIT who have developed a new dedicated Sports Fund which is committing a further £4Million to the sector over the next five years and would like to invite you to an event on 7th November 2018 at Malone Golf Club to hear more about the Fund.
The UCIT Sports Fund offers loans ranging in size from £1,000 – £500,000+ that are individually tailored to support a wide range of purposes including property acquisition, capital build projects, equipment purchase, restructuring of existing debt, bridging funding gaps and matching other sources of grant funding. As a registered charity, all profits generated by UCIT are retained and recycled for reinvestment into the sector.
At this event you will also learn about the Sports Governance Guide for Northern Ireland with principles of good practice on how to effectively govern your sports organisation. Bluefin Sport will also provide a brief overview of insurance considerations when managing your activities and facilities.
We hope you can join us at this event and would be very grateful if you could extend this invitation to any of your member clubs who might currently have funding requirements.
