Honor a Teacher Donations

Looking for a year-end teacher gift? 

Honor your child’s teacher with a donation to FMA! 

If music, art or drama experiences were especially meaningful to your child this year, you can recognize and thank their teachers by making a donation to Friends of Music & the Arts in that teacher's name. Also a great way to honor a retiring teacher!

Funds received by FMA go back to the schools in the form of grants given each year to all 7 Scarsdale schools for arts items not covered in the regular budget.
  • Make your donation via our website,, or by using the form below.
  • Donations in any amount are welcome! (Past gifts have ranged from $20-$100 per teacher.)
  • We will acknowledge your gift with a personal note to the honored teacher on your behalf.
THANK YOU for your support!
