Chime In! Music With a Mission, Inc. members and Board of Directors are grateful to the many patrons who join us for our events and for those who provide financial support.
We are also indebted to several organizations for their support.
Anna & Argall Hull Fund
Argall Hull grew up in the Bellamy-Ferriday House at the head of the green in Bethlehem in the late 1800s. Upon his death in 1977. the First Church of Bethlehem became the beneficiary of his bequest. The Anna & Argall Hull Fund is administered by the Community Foundation of New Haven and the First Church of Bethlehem distributes the proceeds as Grants to local organizations.
For many years, Anna & Argall Hull Fund grants to the Handbell Choirs of First Church, and now to Chime In! Music With a Mission, have provided scholarships for ringers to attend the Handbell Musicians of America Area 1 Handbell Festival and funds to assist in the purchase of our digital stage piano.
