Anyone who makes or plays the harp, or merely touches its strings, adds harmony to the world and the universe. Anyone who touches a harp is a harper.
An inscription on an ancient harp says
When you but touch my strings,
You shall a harper be
When all have touched my strings,
The world will be in harmony.

Harping for Harmony Foundation is a 501(c)(3) exempt charity in the State of West Virginia, established in 1994. Donations are tax-deductable.
Every harper is a harper for harmony. Each of us has a personal mission and gifts. Harping for Harmony Foundation aims to support harpers and harpmakers everywhere, to promote harmony and community, locally and globally, through harp music.
Proposals are evaluated twice a year, after each equinox. There is no application form. US domestic projects are usually not funded, but may be granted promotional and material support including a harp such as Millennia. International projects must involve travel to, or activities within, war-torn or otherwise conflicted regions of the world.
