Encouraging new ideas to attract singers and fans to barbershop harmony
Bud Leabo Memorial Fund (BLMF) is all about:
A Culture of Giving
Those who sing barbershop know how enriching singing is in our lives. Discover how you can spread the message.
Funding New Innovations to Spread Barbershop Harmony
The Bud Leabo Memorial Fund is looking for ideas that will seed unprecedented growth of barbershop singing. We wish to find, encourage, and nurture those ideas.
Funding Your Barbershop Idea
If you have a project that gets people singing, we want to hear about it.
Our granting process is simple and effective. Best of all, minimal reporting will help you focus on your project.
