Is your company a Music Education Champion?
The Musical Youth Foundation children’s charity is searching for Ireland’s Music Education Champions. Corporate or private individuals who understand that music education has the power to transform lives, ensuring vulnerable children remain engaged with the overall academic education process and have the opportunity to achieve a brighter future. Music is the very fabric of our society and together we can weave a wonderful tapestry where every child has access to education equality and the opportunity to reach their full potential.
So how can you help?
We’re looking for 300 Champions to donate just €500 each to help change the lives of vulnerable children throughout Ireland. Join the Musical Youth Foundation mission and become a Music Education Champion today and together we will impact the lives of hundreds and then thousands of children.
Credit where credit is due!
Support our mission and we’ll recognise your donation by presenting you with a limited edition framed artwork created especially to honour Ireland’s Music Education Champions by artist Aga Szot and personalised with your name or company name. This would hold pride of place in your office or company reception area and will be a real talking point for visitors.
And that’s not all…we’ll also provide you with an “Official Supporters” logo which you can include on your website and email signature so all your colleagues and clients can see that you are one of Ireland’s exclusive Music Education Champions. In addition we’ll credit you via one of our social media channels (Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn) and include your logo on our website with a link back to your website.
And there’s more…every quarter we’ll send you an update including photos/video highlighting the progress of the young people whose lives you’re helping to change for the better. You can then tell your staff, clients and business associates about the difference you are making to the youth of Ireland.
Call Chris on 087 603 1022 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Once your payment has been received the Musical Youth Foundation will set you up as a Music Education Champion, we will send you on your limited edition framed certificate, champion logo and provide you with a receipt of payment.
