The Founders Fund

Peggy 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.

GIVE UNTIL IT HURTS
