Giving to the AHS


Your annual dues support American Harp Society member benefits including The American Harp Journal, online newsletters and downloadable publications; the AHS Grants Program, and multiple educational initiatives.   Membership dues also contribute to funding the operating expenses including postage, website maintenance, member services support and administrative management.




The AHS relies on voluntary contributions above and beyond annual dues to fulfill its mission.  AHS dues revenue represents approximately 50% of the annual budget.  Your support makes it possible for the AHS to serve the harp and harpists, through providing resources for research, learning, and performance.

AHS Annual Fund
