CCM's Harmony Fund supports artistic works that fight hate and prejudice through the performing arts. John Harrison and Ginger Warner were two of the visionary founders and inspiring leaders of the CCM Harmony Fund based on the belief that the arts inspire imaginative thinking, encourage conversations, present contrasting attitudes and help us examine our own viewpoints.
Your support of The Harmony Fund helps students, faculty and audience members alike to explore controversial issues and unite against hate and prejudice to affect real change in our communities. Learn more about the Harmony Fund and it's past projects/performances.
