The Ellington Fund
Washington, Washington DC
The Duke Ellington School of the Arts was founded in 1974 to provide professional arts training to aspiring artists who might not otherwise have the opportunity to develop their skills. Recognizing that the school would never be able to survive on DCPS funds alone, the Ellington Fund was formed and formally incorporated in 1978 to support the school both financially and programmatically. Since its founding, the Fund has raised millions of dollars, without which the school would not have survived. In 2001 this unique public-private partnership was expanded to include the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts and The George Washington University. Together, these institutions constitute the Duke Ellington School of the Arts Project (DESAP), an independent 501(c)(3) governed by its own board of directors. Though the Kennedy Center and GW provide tremendous in-kind resources to the school, they do not generally provide direct cash support.
