The Fodor Fund: Enriching Orchestral, Choral, Band & Jazz Music at ETHS
May 1, 2013 Update
Bravo! Donations to the Fodor Fund have just exceeded $100K! We are celebrating this May with two events honoring Dave and the remarkable ETHS music program, as outlined here. Thank you thank you to all who stepped forward, from the $10 donations from recent grads to the leadership gifts from within the ETHS community. A complete list of donors can be found here.
Moving Forward: Please help us set the capstone on this project! New gifts will allow us to invest the full $100,000 immediately and support the ETHS faculty as they begin planning for the inaugural year of the new David B. Fodor Musical Residency Program.
For the past 22 years, through his work with the ETHS Music Department, Dr. David Fodor has enriched the lives of Evanston Township students and their families.
Now, Dave's retiring. And a group of parents and students are joining together to celebrate this occasion by establishing an annual David B. Fodor Musical Residency Program at the high school, designed to benefit all the students in band, orchestra, chorus, and jazz.
This was his idea, by the way.
A $100,000 endowment, invested appropriately and nurtured over time, will endow the Residency Program. Visit the Fodor Fund website at www.fodorfund.org for more details and a variety of donation options. Visit the this page to make a tribute or check out the latest news and events on our Facebook page.
