Our mission is to sponsor, maintain and financially support the various programs and activities including curriculum programs, student support functions, art and academic disciplines and courses, productions, exhibits, concerts, workshops and educational seminars, and to provide scholarship assistance to graduates of the Duke Ellington School in pursuit of college or professional careers.

We support, promote, and empower the next generation of emerging artists, global citizens, and critical scholars by investing in their futures today. In 1978, The Ellington Fund was established as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization to support the Duke Ellington School of the Arts (DESA) through fundraising and development efforts.
