Accordion Program and Scholarships Planned in Alabama - USA

Alabama AA
Craig FunderburgDr. Craig Funderburg, (picture left) Executive Director of the Alabama Accordion Association has set up a website to accept pledges to endow the Accordion Chair and 15 Scholarships. By endowing the Accordion Major, the funds remain intact in perpetuity while its earnings will provide scholarships, professorships, academic chairs, libraries, and the Accordion Major.

Dr. Craig Funderburg and the Alabama Accordion Association are asking accordionists to support this opportunity to establish an Accordion Program at a Major University in the United States.

Craig writes: "Alabama is already known as the “Million Dollar Band.” The Accordion Program could be the “Million Dollar Accordion.” The program needs “pledges” of $3.5M. That equates to about 7,000 enthusiasts pledging $500 apiece. No funds are being collected at this time. The University will not begin accepting funds until sufficient pledges have been made to guarantee the success of the Accordion Major.
