J. Spencer Hammond Memorial Fund

J. Spencer Hammond Memorial Fund, is named for former longtime minister of music, organist and choir director at Douglas Memorial Community Church who also taught music in the city public schools for more than three decades.

Donations to this fund help to support our Organ Scholars Program. In this program the chapter pays half of the cost of lessons for a young student for a year, provides them with organ shoes, and a one-year membership to the AGO, which includes the monthly periodical The American Organist. Memorial donations will go towards this scholarship program, which is made possible through an endowed fund so that it can have a long sustainability.
