Fundraising / fundraising.shtml

The International Guild of Town Pipers is now a registered charity, and we are constantly in need of funds, not only to finance our International Festivals, but to finance Renaissance Loud Wind workshops and other educational ventures, help new bands get started, and to maintain and expand this website.

Just to say that I have joined Easysearch and hope that others will do so too. Once one starts exploring, it quickly becomes clear that buying all sorts of things is not only cheaper this way but benefits the Guild as well. One soon gets into the habit of doing things this way rather than another.
