Here are the 5 specific funds you can choose from: ABANA General Fund: This is the all-purpose operating account of ABANA. In addition
to the Central Office and the Publications, this fund takes care of enhancing the web site, creating the Bealer award, paying for postage and all the little things it takes to keep the organization
2010 Conference Seed Money: This fund is earmarked to help set up the 2010 ABANA Conference in Memphis. Conferences are expensive complicated things to run and it really helps a lot to have some cash on hand early for deposits and planning and a thousand other things.
ABANA Scholarships and Grants: For many years ABANA has given scholarships to promising blacksmiths to help them take courses or gain key experiences. Also ABANA helps Affiliates to fund demonstrators at their meetings. This fund contributes to these and related causes.
ABANA Exhibition Fund: One of ABANA's missions is to increase the awareness of the
craft of blacksmithing among the general public. This fund helps to produce and deploy public exhibitions.
National Ornamental Metal Museum Library Fund: The Library at the Metal Museum in Memphis is a unique resource to those who study the art and craft of blacksmiths and related metal artisans. The ABANA archives are housed within this library, this fund helps with the
expenses of that worthy cause.
