For the first five years the Foundation was funded solely by Marie and Mike. Their generous support allowed us to distribute over £40,000 in awards. These funds were awarded across the following categories.
- 45% Irish Dancing – Education, Performance and Competitions
- 35% Financial Support to individuals
- 20% Irish Music and Culture
From 2018, the Foundation additionally needs to undertake fundraising activities to generate sufficient funds to allow us to continue granting awards. Please take a look at our “Get Involved” page and help us to continue and expand our support of the next generation of talented individuals on their journey through the ever-changing and evolving world of dance.
