The Fund 4 Design & Art Education operates with kind assistance from the Dade Art Educators – a 501(C)(3). The Fund was established in August of 2013 when lifelong art teachers Marlene Kohn and Marilyn Traeger donated to the DAEA to help make artistic dreams come true. The Fund, which started as a little idea, has grown thanks to the support of Miami-Dade County Public Schools, The Dade Art Educators Association, The Alper JCC, the F4DAE Student Volunteer Board, the F4DAE Volunteer Board and our generous donors.
