Grant Aid and Bursary Support.

Applying for grants can be a time-consuming process that requires good planning and preparation, but with that effort, event organisers can be rewarded with sustainable financial support. You may wish to look into some of the smaller community grants that are available locally and nationally look towards funding streams whose purpose is to support larger events. Bursaries are also open to individuals for Culture & Sport.

Visit Council Grants & Bursary Programme for additional information. For further assistance contact the Funding & Investment Unit, Fermanagh and Omagh District Council:

Event Budget

You need to give your budget careful thought to ensure that you have included all of your event’s potential income and expenditure. Depending on your ambitions for your event, and how much support you have from the local community, you may need to fund-raise to cover your costs.  Events vary significantly in cost depending on the nature and scale of your plans.

Please think about income and expenditure for the event remember to consider all income you may receive. An expenditure list can be exhaustive and rather than list individual items at a planning stage it can be easier to estimate spend under several headings. Our Events Budget Template will provide you with a great starting point and can be downloaded below.

Sponsorship Opportunities

Fermanagh and Omagh District Council has a number of service activities and events that carry potential sponsorship and partnership opportunities. These assets could provide the opportunity for local businesses and media to raise awareness of their products and services in a cost effective and targeted manner – encouraging residents and visitors to support local businesses as well as supporting local economic growth.

These sponsorship opportunities may include (but are not limited to):

  • Corporate events,
  • Council organised sporting events,
  • Council tourism events.
  • Other Sponsor or partnership opportunities

The Council will advertise Inward Sponsorship opportunities on this webpage. All potential Sponsors will be required to complete an online application form. Please read the Sponsorship Inward Guidelines before completing the online Sponsorship application.
