Outreach efforts of the Barbershop Harmony Society grew by 30% in 2014, and in 2015, Harmony Foundation underwriting will double the Society's annual outreach funding.

To deliver still more activities, we've implemented an industry-standard, 100% online grant request and review process that will better help you:

  • design more visionary and higher impact outreach activities

  • become better leaders in your community by uncovering your chapter/district's identity and purpose

  • create grant requests that have an improved chance at receiving additional local funding

The Society's new vision extends far beyond traditional youth outreach. Relevance in your communities means making a difference in more lives:

  • Adult outreach -- all age groups, from recent college graduates to seniors; as members, fellow singers, and audiences

  • Community outreach -- building partnership with other musical organizations and underserved populations, age groups, income levels, and ethnicities

  • Youth outreach -- through camps, workshops, festivals and scholarships

  • Education-- supporting school music programs and support for educators themselves

  • Supporting community-based choral initiatives and community singing

  • Support of the chapter purpose areas in the Society bylaws

  • Leveraging BHS funding to obtain additional local funding

Applications may be submitted beginning March 1, 2015, and continuing though April 30, 2015. Full details, applications, instructions, templates, and training webinars are online at
