The "Friends of The Raleigh Ringers" annual donation program provides an opportunity for individuals and corporations to help The Raleigh Ringers bring its music to the community and the world. In the early years, donations were used to purchase more sets of bells and other instruments, including 6 octaves of Malmark Chimes, a set of Cup Bells from the Whitechapel Bell Foundry, a set of rare Silver Melody Bells, Musser orchestra chimes, a two-octave set of Deagan handbells, a set of Cymbells, and most recently a set of antique Shaker Chimes. Generous Friends of The Raleigh Ringers have donated over $200,000 since the campaign began in 1995. Friends donations are now also being used to help defray the group's administrative and production expenses, which have increased dramatically since The Raleigh Ringers was founded in 1990.
