The Carolinas Harmony Society recently approved a program to assist chapters in re-introducing themselves to their communities. The District is offering this grant program to help the Chapters of the District develop and implement novel, timely and effective ideas to reach out to their local communities as they restart operations after the COVID-19 shutdowns of 2020/2021. The intent is to help Chapters to exchange ideas with other chapters, reintroduce themselves to their communities and encourage resumption of organized singing in their communities.
The Carolinas Harmony Society will make grants of up to $1,000 per chapter based on an application that aligns with the criteria of the Grant Program. Depending on the merit of the ideas submitted, it may be possible to pool Chapter grants for a combined activity. A chapter applying for this grant program shall identify an individual or group that will act as their grant Spark Plug(s) that will lead the effort, participate in inter-chapter conferences, write the application, plan and manage the activities that are funded and submit reports as required.
Chapters are requested to provide the contact information for their spark plug(s) to Tom Martyn. A kickoff meeting is being scheduled for June 05, 2021 from 10am to noon. The full description of the Grant Program and application process and an application form can be found on the Resouces and Documents page
