CCE MAD Week welcomes donations to help support our work. If it is within your means and willingness to help out financially, please consider making your tax deductible contribution to one or all of these funds. Thank you in advance for your support of CCE MAD Week through these funds!
MAD Week offers financial assistance to students through two scholarship funds:
Lisa Dale Memorial Scholarship Fund
Gordon Todd Dale generously established this fund in loving memory of his wife, a long-time MAD Week fiddler who passed on June 2011. Passionate about life, her family, and trad Irish music, Lisa will always be with us in spirit.
Mike Rafferty Memorial Scholarship Fund
Mike Rafferty, the legendary traditional Irish flutist from Ballinakill, East-Galway passed away September 13, 2011. Mike was teacher and mentor to many, and in 2009 received the National Heritage Fellowship “Lifetime Achievement” Award from the National Endowment for the Arts for his contribution to traditional Irish music. The O’Neill-Malcom Branch of CCE established this fund in his honor.
