Monetary Support, Area 3
Scholarship Fund – The Area 3 Scholarship Fund provides scholarships to the National Director’s Seminar and to the Area III Director’s seminar to handbell directors who are Area 3 residents, Handbell Musicians of America members, and first-time attendees. These scholarships enable many people to attend such learning events.
CHIME Loan Fund – The CHIME Loan program provides a set of either Malmark or Schulmerich handchimes and basic instruction books to two organizations a year, allowing that organization to start its own Handbell/Handchime program. The program benefits schools, churches, and other community groups. The CHIME Loan fund pays for new materials for the groups, as well as repairs to the chimes, etc.
Donations can be made in honor of someone or in memory of someone. To donate, please make checks out to the fund that you wish to contribute to. Send them to the Treasurer, at the following address:
