Support the Mission of AAM: Serving the Episcopal Church
The Association of Anglican Musicians is a non-profit organization. We operated on membership dues and depend on additional donations for our grants and member programming. There are a few ways to give to AAM, all of which are fully tax-deductible.
The Annual Fund
The Endowment Fund
The AAM Endowment Fund was established to receive, invest, and administer bequests and gifts to the Association. The Fund currently stands at over $1.2 Million. Since it began disbursing funds, nearly $250,000 has been awarded through AAM Endowment Grants.
Programs of the Endowment Fund
The James Litton Grant for Choral Training
Honoring one of the co-founders of the Association of Anglican Musicians, the James Litton Grant for Choral Training will be given to an AAM member for the purpose of further developing their own choir training skills, building a chorister program for young singers, or for another endeavor which lives into the spirit of creating excellent choral experiences within the Episcopal Church.
The Raymond Glover Grant for Episcopal Liturgical Music
The Raymond Glover Grant for Music in Episcopal Liturgy is given to a musician working in an Episcopal Church for the purpose of further developing their skills in the area of music and its integral connection to the liturgies in The Book of Common Prayer.
The Gerre Hancock Internship
Honoring Gerre Hancock, a founder of the Association of Anglican Musicians, this 10-month paid internship offers a young church musician the opportunity to be mentored within one of the Episcopal Church’s great music programs.
