Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Sustain CIM's decade-long commitment to high-quality music instruction provided by master artists handing down the traditions and history of Ireland. With a balanced budget and growing partnerships in fiscal year 2017, CIM will support the work of twenty teaching artists and up to 380 students in year-round instruction; fiscal and donor metrics will be analyzed. 2: CIM will increase enrollment and scholarship opportunities in fiscal year 2017 as we build private support for our community art school. CIM will serve up to 380 students in fiscal year 2017, dedicating up to 3 percent of tuition revenue toward scholarships for students in need. Enrollment statistics, web stats and publicity will be tracked.

Measurable Outcome(s)

The Center for Irish Music reached 340 individual students offering 400 year-round Irish music classes taught by 24 talented teaching artists. Twenty-seven CIM students qualified to compete at the All-Ireland Fleadh, a strong testament to the quality of instruction at the Center for Irish Music. The org finished FY 2016 with a $22K surplus and an 11% increase in private donations. 2: CIM served 340 individual students, a 9% increase over FY 2016 - with 5.4 percent of music school revenue committed to financial aid and discounts. CIM exceeded annual revenue goals this fiscal year, with an actual budget of $289K including $9969 in financial aid and scholarships to qualified candidates. CIM saw over 60 new students in this grant period.
