The Founders Fund

THE FOUNDERS FUND

Peggy Cooper Cafritz and Mike Malone envisioned a new kind of learning experience; a place where District of Columbia youth could receive world-class arts training alongside rigorous academic instruction. They built the Duke Ellington School of the Arts to house the creative soul of the District.

Our Founders Fund sustains their legacy.
