Today the organization is now working closely with the Irish Government through the Department of Education and Skills as well as with Local Music Education Partnerships to sustain the program in existing areas and ensure a long-term lasting outcome from this philanthropic giving. The most recent donations by U2 2m raised through the iNNOCENCE eXPERIENCE Irish concerts in November 2015and the 1m gift from The Ireland Funds together with further investment achieved through private philanthropic donations will enable expansion of the program to more areas of the country. This will provide access to performance music education for even more children and young people who would otherwise not have the chance to participate. initiated by music network music generation is co-funded by u2 the ireland funds the department of education and skills and local music education partnerships together with the arts council and st. patricks college drumcondra. music generation would not exist without the vision and philanthropic support of u2 and the ireland funds. every day the lives of thousands of children and young people are being transformed through access to a variety of music t u i t i o n o p p o r t u n i t i e s everything from song-writ- ing initiatives to brass bands orchestras choirs rock groups rap projects grupa cheoil and composers clubs. and the reason that this ground-break- ing music education initiative has been such a success story is because of the partnership base that underpins how we work.
