The Society primarily allocates funds to projects within Northern Ireland that will have a positive impact in Northern Ireland.
Preferred projects will be those demonstrating active participation and self-help. They should be innovative and developmental with an achievable, practical and sustainable objective.
The Committee will only make donations toward specific projects under the control of a responsible organisation and when large capital projects are involved, only when satisfied that the sponsoring organisation has raised or is capable of raising the remainder of the finance required.
The Main Objectives:
· Disadvantaged sections of our society
· Young people
· Culture & Heritage
The Committee will give priority to projects where support from Ulster Garden Villages Limited will make a difference to the outcome of the project and will encourage support from other organisations.
HOW TO APPLY
We will require information about your organisation and the project you propose. This includes:
· the purpose of your organisation
· how it is constituted, administered and funded
· a description of your proposed project

· how the project will be sustained or finished
Where the project is in excess of £50,000 more detail in relation to project rationale, economic appraisal and building proposals, if relevant, should be included.
