Since its inception in 2006, Music Drives Us has helped hundreds of individuals, organizations, and schools throughout New England. Each year during our grant cycle, these groups apply for our Performance Grants or Organizational Grants. After a thorough review process, MDU selects the applicants who will receive funding. We are proud to share that to date, we have donated more than $1,000,000! We look forward to the continued expansion of our movement in the coming years.
