Welcome to the Warren Arts and Education Foundation's web pages. As you scroll through the pages you will have a better idea of who we are and what we do for students, teachers and schools in MSD Warren Township.

An estimated 40 permanently and spectacularly decorated trees will be displayed during "25 YEARS OF CHRISTMAS",the 25th annual Warren Holiday TreeFest from Nov. 22-26, 2013 in the Warren Performing Arts Center (WPAC) on the campus of Warren Central High School, 9500 E. 16th St., Indianapolis.
Do you have a musical instrument gathering dust in the closet? Won't you help by letting someone play it again? We have a number of 'wannabe' musicians in middle school who have no instrument to play. We will have the instruments appraised for tax purposes, repaired if repairable and in the schools for the students.
If you have an instrument to donate please contact the Warren Arts and Education Foundation Office at 317-869-4383 or firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange for drop-off or to have it picked up.

When you seek the perfect gift for that special person, remember the “Making A Difference” program through the Warren Arts & Education Foundation. You may wish to honor your child’s teacher, principal, support staff, volunteer or neighbor. Also, you may wish to honor a former teacher or staff member. You can even make a donation for no special reason.
