East Aurora High School Band Program Fund

Established 2021

This Fund will be used to provide support for the East Aurora High School Band Program.

The East Aurora High School Band program has been providing quality music education to Aurora students for over a century. Established in 1916, the band has performed all over Aurora and the surrounding communities as well as taken students around the country and even a few trips overseas. The program is currently at the largest it has ever been with over 300 band members performing in concert bands, the Marching Tomcats, jazz bands, small ensembles, and more. We are dedicated to giving our students the best musical experience possible to make them lifelong music lovers.


The donations gathered here will be used by the East Aurora Band Booster Association to enrich the musical opportunities possible for the students of East Aurora. We will be using these funds to help pay for student private lessons, summer camps, masterclasses, and more. To find out more information about the East Aurora Band Program please visit

A community foundation is a donor-driven organization that helps donors custom-design funds that reflect their charitable interests. Through the years, grants from these funds have made a significant impact on our local communities.

…you can always start small, even $25 can make a difference. Remember we can’t take our money with us. Even if it’s just your gift of time. Volunteer and get involved.

We chose the Community Foundation because of its reputation. It’s well known, established and we can trust them to do the job for us.

Richard and Susan Schindel Scholarship Funds

As a first-generation college student from a low-income family, I was worried about how I was going to pay for books and supplies. This scholarship will allow me to focus more on my studies instead of worrying about how to afford college. I am working to not only create opportunities for myself but to motivate future generations. Thank you so much for helping me along this journey!

Thank you very much for supporting my college education for these four years. I will never be able to repay you for the opportunity that this scholarship has given to me.
