Since 1979, The Ellington Fund, the charitable arm of Duke Ellington School of the Arts, has raised money to help support Ellington’s pre-professional arts education programming. While DC Public Schools provides financial support for our academic curriculum, The Ellington Fund helps fill the gap between DC Public School (DCPS) funding and the cost of a world-class arts education. Donate today to help raise these vital funds so that all District youth can have access to a life-changing arts education. Contributions are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law. Our tax ID is 52-1152273.
