Your Chance to Invest
Invest in your club
Invest in your community

Thanks to the hard work and the success of previous fundraising efforts, Mungret St.Pauls G.A.A. acquired new lands for the club development plan.  The next stage is to develop top-class facilities for all our Gaelic games and all our members.

These new pitches are being built for everyone, but it is you, our members, friends, and supporters, who are the cement that binds this community together. Without your support and commitment, no development project on its own could ever hope to create a community.

The quickly growing demographic, in conjunction with a huge increase in playing numbers, requires new and state-of-the-art facilities.

Your support can shape our future!

If the club’s funding plan is successful, it is proposed that the Middle Pitch, Ball Wall and Astroturf will be completed in Phase 1. This will also include all necessary site works to enable the development, along with access roads, street lighting and footpaths.

 

All three pitches will be fitted with floodlights and fencing.

Mungret St. Pauls are currently in the process on signing on final designs and specifications.  Planning permission is in place for the middle pitch, and we are at final stages of planning permission for the master plan. 

We will soon be going to tender to several specialist contractors. The overview of the budget is outlined below.  Our success in fundraising will determine the overall project timeline.

How Your Investment Works

We have successfully applied for the club to be classed as an Approved Sports Body with Revenue. The project has been approved by the Department of Media, Tourism, Arts Culture Sport and the Gaeltacht.  This entitles the club to claim tax relief on qualifying donations made.

TAX RELIEF ON DONATIONS TO SPORTING BODIES FOR APPROVED PROJECTS

Following are examples of how this system works for PAYE Taxpayers:

For PAYE workers, who contribute a minimum of €250 per annum, this contribution is paid from after-tax income and it is this tax payment element that is reclaimed by Mungret St. Pauls GAA club. It costs the donor nothing extra but provides a huge benefit to the sporting body.

Example – Donation by PAYE Taxpayer
Below is a summary of the potential benefit to the club under a number of scenarios:

Following are examples of how this system works for Self-Employed Taxpayers:

If you pay any tax under the self-assessment scheme, you can claim tax relief on your donations yourself. For example, if a self-employed individual who pays income tax at the higher rate of 40% donates €1,000 to the Club, the value of that donation to the Club is €1,000. However, the actual cost of the donation to the individual may be calculated as follows:

Donation received by the Club €1,000 
Tax relief available to the donor €400
Actual cost of donation to the donor €600

In summary, as self-employed, individuals are personally entitled to claim tax relief for donations.

In essence, this tax relief scheme provides a means for Mungret St. Pauls GAA Club to raise additional funds at no extra cost to you, the donor.

Note :- Tax can only be claimed once the donors contribute a minimum of €250 per annum.

How to Invest

There are three investment options being offered, and for each option there are three amounts that can be selected.

All funds raised will be ring fenced for the “Club Development Plan” and all investors will be kept up to date with progress reports.

Community Facilities

Mungret St. Pauls are currently investigating the options to greatly improve our facilities as a Community Centre for our rapidly growing community.

These include a walkway, outdoor exercise equipment, outdoor sensory area, expanded gym for all club members, upgrades to existing Community Hall to allow for expanded use by the wider community.

 

Further information around funding, planning permission & costings are required but we are very excited about these projects and feel confident we can make them happen.
