Bridging Loans

Sports Grants are paid following submission of receipts for works completed and paid for. Clann Credo can provide you with a Bridging Loan to pay for works done for your club allowing you to claim the Sports Grant. The Clann Credo loan is repaid when your club receives the Sports Grant.

Term/Matching Loans

Clann Credo can provide you with a term loan for your club’s development. The Sports Grant process may also require you to show your organisation has sufficient match finance (own funds) to cover the cost of the project. Clann Credo can provide you with a Match Funding Loan if your sports club does not have enough reserves to avail for the Sports Grant. Clann Credo’s repayment terms are flexible.
