By piofficer, Wednesday, 3rd November 2021 | 0 comments

The TUI Global Development Fund was established with the distinct purpose of assisting educational, developmental and trade union projects in underdeveloped countries as approved by the Executive Committee from time to time.

€0.95 of each full member’s subscription is allocated to the fund.

Applications for donations from the TUI’s Global Development Fund are considered once a year at the November or December meeting of the Finance Sub-Committee and notification regarding successful applications will be posted shortly afterwards.  This year the TUI’s Global Development Fund will have over €20,000 at its disposal.

If you wish to apply for funding for a project you are involved in or support, please provide details of the project to Patricia Keating, Administrative Officer at  Due to the large number of applications received, a member may submit only one application.

Applications must be submitted by 5.00 p.m. on 17th November 2021.

While the amount donated to each project is modest, the feedback we receive from the various recipients indicates that your funding of these projects has a significant impact and is greatly appreciated.  There is an added advantage in that the money donated from the TUI Global Development Fund goes directly to the projects concerned. 

TUI’s Global Development Fund can make a real difference to worthy causes at ground level and members are encouraged to nominate a chosen project before the closing date.

Last year a total of 8 projects received a contribution from the TUI’s Global Development Fund including:

Kate Lynch Scholarship Fund
