As some of you may know, this has been a retrospective season for Embellish with the passing away of our “Aunt Bernie” last September. In the early years of Embellish, Bernie Keller and her husband, Fred, through the Keller Foundation, gave our group a strong foundation by donating funds for Embellish's first five octaves of bells in memory of Bernie's sister, Ardath Wiltse.
After Bernie's passing last September, Fred and Linn Keller, Bernie's son and daughter-in-law, read of our long-time interest in purchasing a C2 aluminum bass handbell and generously offered to set up a matching fund to purchase this bell for us in memory of Ardath and Bernie.
As you contemplate your 2012 financial gifts, please consider including Embellish in your plans. All gifts are tax deductible and will be matched dollar for dollar by the Keller family.
Donations can be given by using the Paypal link above, or can also be sent to Embellish, PO Box 1497, Grand Rapids, MI 49501. Be sure to indicate “C2 matching fund” on your donation and include your name and address so we can issue you a receipt for your tax purposes.
Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match charitable contributions made by their employees. If you work for company that does this please consider asking for a form to double or triple the size of your generosity!
