DAVE CHAPPELLE MILLION DOLLAR CHALLENGE: Help us close the funding gap so DUKE ELLINGTON SCHOOL OF THE ARTS can keep art at the heart of its dual academic and arts curriculum. Over the next 12 months, we challenge 1M supporters to donate at least $10 each so the school can endow its eight art departments. Please text ELLINGTON to 707070 or click here.
This event was hosted by the Ellington Fund, the charitable arm of Duke Ellington School of the Arts. Donations to the Ellington Fund are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.
