How we are funded

Musical Connections registered as a charity in March 2016, number 1165993. We are a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO) and are governed by a board of trustees who meet regularly to oversee the work conducted by our three contracted musicians.

We are constantly seeking to raise new funds to keep our groups going in the future. We rely heavily on community fundraising as well as grants, so if you feel you can help in any way, please support us here. Without this money the project would not exist.
