About Upper Darby Arts and Education Foundation

Founded in 1998 to support the educational and arts programs of area students, the Upper Darby Arts & Education Foundation has grown to offer a wealth of educational programming, service opportunities and artistic performance enjoyed throughout the Philadelphia metro area. One of the leading arts and education foundations in the state of Pennsylvania, the Foundation’s goal is to build community through the arts and to have a positive impact on every child in our sphere of influence through the programs we support.

While continuing our commitment of support to area students, the Foundation now encompasses the programs of both Upper Darby Summer Stage and Schoener MusicMan Academy, bringing arts enrichment to students of all interests and abilities throughout the region. The Foundation additionally sponsors the high school-based UDAE Service Club and the Upper Darby Collaborative composed of local nonprofits, both intended to foster a stronger community of caring in our neighborhoods.
