Donate by Dec. 31 and have your donation doubled!

Thanks to your help, 2013 has been one of the most successful years ever for Bells of the Cascades.

Your tax-deductible donation will help us ring in the new year.

If you act by Dec. 31, Bells of the Cascades ringers will match your donation dollar for dollar up to $1,200. That means your donation will have twice the impact — but only if you act now!

As you know, Bells of the Cascades is a 501(c)(3) organization, and donations will be fully tax-deductible for 2013 if you donate online by the end of Dec. 31 or send a check postmarked by Dec. 31 to Bells of the Cascades, P.O. Box 151, Tualatin, OR 97062.

As a nonprofit, Bells of the Cascades is committed to supporting and expanding the performance of innovative handbell music. With the launch of Rose City Ringers, we’re training the next generation of advanced handbell ringers, while the creation of the Holiday Ringer ensembles has allowed us to bring handbell performances to more audiences than ever.

Help us do even more by making a tax-deductible donation to Bells of the Cascades today.

We’re committed to making the art of handbell ringing more accessible, more available, more interesting and more exciting to both audiences and other bell ringers in the Portland area. But with these new ventures, expenses are also rising, and we need your help.

Make a tax-deductible donation by Dec. 31, and we’ll double it. Act now!
