Friends of RCR

The “Friends of The River City Ringers” donation program provides an opportunity for individuals and corporations to help The River City Ringers bring its music to the community.  In 1988, a grant was used to purchase the original 5 octave set of bells.   Donations were used to purchase more sets of bells and other instruments, including 6 octaves of Chimes, a set of rare Silver Melody Bells, and a set of Cymbells.  Friends donations are also being used to help defray the group’s administrative and travel expenses, as well as additional instruments.  River City Ringers friends can also contribute in non-monetary ways – providing printing.

If you or your organization would like to become a Friend of The River City Ringers, please contact the Managing Director .  All donations are tax-deductible, and corporate matching fund programs are accepted.  Matching Gift forms may be sent to The River City Ringers – please send an email to for mailing information. For your convenience, PayPal is also accepted for donations. Donors at all levels are listed in programs and on the website.

The River City Ringers sincerely appreciates the support and generosity of the Friends donors through the years.
