Mallory Family Fine Arts Fund

The Mallory Family Fine Arts Fund was started by Bill Mallory, in honor of his son. The fund was established to help promote and create opportunities for young people to develop their talents, skills and abilities and engage with the fine arts, and to support music that enriches our worship services and special events. The fund has made possible our Spring musical productions, play performances, the Mallory EpiscoBells, our School of the Arts, and has provided music scholarships for students to sing in our choirs.  Revenue for the fund comes from individual gifts, ticket sales from our musical/theater productions, and registration fees for our School of the Arts.

If you are interested in giving to the Mallory Family Fine Arts Fund, funding a music scholarship for a deserving student, supporting our School of the Arts or our theater productions, please contact Rachel Root at
