Your Contribution Plus!

By supporting Chime In! during the GiveLocal campaign, your contribution will be partially matched.

Last year, a gift of $50 became $56 after the match.


What does it cost?

Donations made through the GiveLocal website are charged 3% for credit card processing and 2% for site management. But, we anticipate matching funds will add significantly more than the costs.

Here is how bonus funds work:

Every dollar donated to participating nonprofits will be enhanced with a portion of over $100,000 in bonus funds provided by Connecticut Community Foundation and Give Local sponsors - making donor dollars stretch farther.
Each nonprofit's share of the bonus fund pool will be proportional to the organization's percentage of the total funds raised during Give Local.



Our invitation’s in our name: Chime In!

Contribute to Give Local for Chime In!

Arising from our origins as a family of handbell choirs, our mission is to engage people in the joy and sense of community that music fosters through participation and performance.

So our handbell concerts are interactive and include a time for our audience and supporters to chime in through interactive Q&A sessions, audience participation with voices and instruments, and the after-concert petting zoo to sample all the instruments.

Our home base is Bethlehem, CT, but we share our handbell music at a diversity of settings and venues, near and far, throughout the year. From Main Stage at the Bethlehem Fair to the New Haven International Festival of Arts & Ideas to Carnegie Hall to local nursing homes, from collaborative concerts with choral and orchestral groups to hosting local choirs and community musicians for an annual Ring & Sing Community Music Day, we are passionate about making and sharing our music to build community.
