Chapter Grants



The members of the Board of Directors of the ARS invite you to consider ways which will make your chapter stronger and allow it to provide better playing and educational opportunities for your members.

To help in the endeavor, the ARS has allocated funds for use by chapters.

Since September 1991, chapters needing help to increase their membership and enhance their programs have been invited to apply for $150-$500 per fiscal year. The funds must be used in the fiscal year in which they were awarded.

The Chapters, Consorts, and Recorder Orchestras Committee awards these grants to chapters demonstrating the greatest need and/or best use of the grant. Where competition for funds exists, the ARS will give preference to chapters that plan to use grant proceeds for chapter  membership-development purposes.

ARS Chapter Grants are available only to chapters having at least 10 ARS members.

Grant applications are due each year on the following schedule:
  • May 15 for projects starting at any time after July 1
  • November 15 for projects starting at any time after January 1.
