The DHERF enables ACM Lifting Lives to respond quickly to unforeseen, immediate financial needs of music related organizations and individuals. Funds are disbursed at the discretion of a small committee made up of ACM Lifting Lives Board Members. The fund's resources cover a wide range of financial, medical and personal emergencies, and each case is treated with integrity and confidentiality. The fund was established to honor Diane Holcomb's memory by her only daughter, Gayle Holcomb, who served four years as Chairman of the Board of the Academy of Country Music.
