Eichler Memorial Fund

Charles Anthony Eichler Memorial Fund

Charles Anthony Eichler was known to his friends and family as Charlie. Charlie was a MCPS graduate and a talented vocal artist with a great love of music. A memorial fund has been established to support music education programs in MCPS through the Montgomery County Public Schools Educational Foundation grants program. One grant will be awarded for $500 each year during our fall grants process.


The fund supports music education programs in MCPS. Funds may be used to purchase instruments for teachers or students; for student- or teacher-proposed projects that incorporate music, or for the acquisition of sheet music that will be used in musical arts instruction. Programs should be experiential in design and provide active learning experiences for students. The link for our grant programs include the application process for the Eichler Memorial Fund.
