Crescendo Fund

Enhancing Band, Orchestra, Choir, Piano, Voice, Musical Theatre, and Music Theory programs in State College Area Schools


Story of Fund

Fund general arts

A generous donor contributed $100,000 anonymously to start this fund with the hope that it would strengthen the State College Area School District's music education program and increase students' potential to perform, create and understand music;


How Does it Help?

This gift will enable us to go above and beyond our budgetary confines in the area of music education.

Distributions from the Fund are paid to SCASD to enchance the sequential program of music courses in Band, Orchestra, Choir, Piano, Voice, Musical Theatre, and Music Theory as offered at the the different grade levels across the District. The distributions are also intended to contribute to the extracurricular activities of the musical groups sponsored by the District.
