Members Development Fund


What is Members Development Fund Initiative?


The Members Development Fund is a component of Donegal County Council’s Development Funds Initiative, which is managed and administered under the Community and Enterprise Division.

The Members Development Fund is a small, but flexible source of funding provided to assist Groups in the development of locally based community projects and group activities. Annual funding is allocated to this initiative, which is apportioned to each of the 37 Members.


How do I access this fund?


Contact the Elected Members of Donegal County Council requesting financial assistance from the Fund. The Elected Member allocates the monies on a discretionary basis.


The Elected Member submits a completed Allocation Form to the Community and Enterprise Division. Allocations can be made on a stand-alone basis or in conjunction with other Elected Members in respect of a single initiative


Upon receipt of the completed Allocation Form the Community and Enterprise Division will forward an Application Form and a Tax Statement Form to the Group advising them of their allocation by the Elected Member. Completed applications must be returned to Community and Enterprise, Donegal County Council, Station Island, Lifford, Co. Donegal.
