Ways to Support the CIM

The Center for Irish Music is a thriving Irish community music school because of the generous support of our donors, volunteers and community partners.  The amazing growth that CIM has experienced since its creation in 2004 would not have been possible without the active, enriching engagement that this wonderful community of support provides.

If you are already actively supporting CIM, we thank you!  If you would like to join this fantastic and inspiring community, please take a moment to explore the various ways you can take part.
