SECAD Partnership management of Community Benefit/CSR Funds Management

SECAD’s expertise in benefit fund management enables corporates to follow good practice guidelines for profit sharing with communities where a sustainable energy project has been established.

SECAD has a strong track record of managing the ESB’s (the Electricity Supply Board) and Coillte’s (semi-state forestry company) sustainable energy Community Benefit Funds since 2014 and 2015 respectively.

What we do
Specifically, through a ‘Grant Making Organisation’ service, SECAD manages community benefit funds on behalf of the funder(s). This involves management of the entire process from application stage through to project completion and final claim. SECAD ensures funder(s) have up-to- date reports on fund activity and impact.

In addition to fund management, SECAD also provides capacity building and support training programmes, which are tailored according to the community’s needs.

SECAD always seeks to facilitate communities to develop longer term and more sustainable projects as well as leveraging funding from other sources. Ultimately, this approach greatly enhances the overall impact of the funds in communities.

Impact
By January 2018, SECAD Partnership distributed €700,000 to over 200 community based projects through various Community Benefit Funds. SECAD oversees and manages this process with communities spread across 12 counties in Ireland.
