Collins Memorial Bell Tower Fund

The Collins Memorial Bell Tower Fund was established in 1991 to honor the Collins family through a restricted fund to which members may contribute, for the sole purpose of supporting the production of The Bell Tower℠ magazine. Contributions are not intended to cover the whole cost of publishing The The Bell Tower℠ magazine. The contributions are paid from the fund for each issue and help to maintain and assure the continued excellence and perpetuation of publication of The Bell Tower℠ magazine.

The responsibility for writing, editing, and publishing the official newsletter of the American Bell Association was assumed by Mary Alter Collins and her daughter-in-law, Louise Collins, of Pennsylvania, in 1942 and was continued by the Collins family for 50 years!

Donations to the Collins Memorial Bell Tower Fund are always appreciated. When you make a contribution please be sure to include your first and last name(s), mailing address, telephone number and/or email address, the amount you have donated, and whether you wish the gift to be listed as anonymous. If you are giving a non-tax-deductible gift to honor or memorialize someone, please:

  • state the name(s) of the person or people
  • whether in honor of or in memory of that person
  • the donor’s name(s) or anonymous
  • the name and address of the family member to be notified of your kindness.

Please make checks payable to “ABA”
