Donations and Sponsorship

For some time now the club have been considering following the lead of most clubs in the country and having its own weekly lotto or raffle to help develop our facilities. We have a monumental amount of work to do this year including:-


  • Building a carpark and roadway
  • Constructing a high jump area
  • Installing 8 additional floodlights
  • Constructing an 8-lane tartan sprint runway
  • Constructing additional long jump pits

And in the future including

  • An 800m perimeter gravel walking/jogging path
  • A state of the art indoor training centre incorporating gym, fitness class rooms, athletics training areas etc.

And the club have found the perfect charity to partner with on our fundraising campaign. The Croí BraveHearts Lotto is an innovative online lotto run by Croí in partnership with select local sports clubs or organisations. For 3 decades Croí has been battling heart disease/stroke in the West of Ireland with their information campaigns and health initiatives. They are the perfect fit for one of the most progressive and largest athletics clubs in the country whose purpose is to develop everyone to their potential whether that is just a regular habit of social exercise or competing at the highest level in Galway, Connacht, Ireland or abroad.

By signing up to the Croí BraveHearts Lotto for as little as €2 per week, participants receive weekly e-zines on cardiac health, learn and diet and exercise programs, healthy recipes and much more. €1 goes to Croí and €1 goes to Craughwell AC to help us develop our much needed facilities. Croí bear all the costs of the lotto, prizes etc. so 50% of everything you give goes to the club. Every cent of that will be ploughed into the ground in our new field to help develop our facilities for use by all. As an added incentive, the club will give free Park Membership for each year that you sign up for a 52-week lotto subscription.

So get on board, it’s a no-brainer as they would say in America … for €2 per week you get the following (incidentally we welcome very much donations from America and abroad as well as locally!!!)).

  • To donate to a highly regarded charity
  • To donate to a hard-working athletic club that promotes healthy exercise and competition
  • A chance to win a minimum jackpot of €3000 each week
  • Free annual membership of Craughwell AC Sports & Recreation Park which you can use all-day Fri-Sat-Sun and anytime Mon-Thurs except 6-9pm during juvenile training hours.
  • The satisfaction of helping people in this part of Galway stay fit and healthy
  • A big smile and feeling of “I helped that” when you see hundreds of kids exercising on the grounds or when athletes from the club succeed at the highest levels
