Giving to the Upper Darby Arts and Education Foundation’s annual fund is the broadest means of support, allowing the board to determine the best use of funds within needs expressed by the school district and, particularly, its teachers.
The Brad Schoener Memorial Fund is established to provide lessons for talented students who may not be able to afford them, provide instruments for all elementary students who have the desire to learn, and establish a summer music camp for elementary students - now the Schoener MusicMan Academy!
