Donations to Celtic Non-Profits (as of the end of 2015)

I think it was 2003 that I first released a compilation CD called Coventina's Well. It featured a bunch of awesome Celtic bands I found I paid royalties to the artists on the compilation for each album that sold. It was a major headache. I discontinued the album, and in 2005, I released The Secret World of Celtic Rock with a different plan, to raise money for Celtic Non-Profits. Each time an album sold, I donated a portion of the profits. Since that first compilation, I've donated over $20,000. We've done a lot of good work, together.

Last year, I forgot to compile a list of donations. So I'm gonna do that right now. Thanks to all of my Patrons of the Podcast, this year's number is a lot higher than it would be. I donate 10% of all income from Patreon to Celtic Non-Profits. That accounted for $498 of the donations.

2015 Donations

  • Indy Irish festival = $500
  • Pittsburgh Irish Festival = $1693.57

Total Donations in 2015 = $2193.57

2014 Donations

  • Tennessee Valley Scottish Society = $1000
  • Kilted to Kick Cancer = $1490

So let's add those into the list of donations I've made over the years and see how much we've helped out Celtic non-profit peeps.
