Mobilizing the Community in Support of DCPS

At DC Ed Fund, we are working to build strong family and community connections.

Following the largest DCPS Beautification Day effort in the history of the event, with over 5,000 volunteers across the city, this school year DCPS will continue to focus on engaging families and the community.

Putting funds to work at city and school level

Putting funds to work at city and school level

DC Ed Fund serves a critical role in ensuring that privately funded initiatives and projects are managed with the accountability and oversight necessary to maximize impact on student achievement. Beyond the fiduciary responsibilities associated with the Education Fund’s legal role as recipient of funds, our staff does much more to increase the impact of philanthropic giving to DCPS.


Our Priority Initiatives

DC Ed Fund celebrates and is encouraged by the recent successes by DC Public Schools and looks forward to our continued partnership to accelerate student achievement. Most notably, we are pursuing philanthropic investments to: Grow Blended Learning Programs; Expand Family Engagement Partnerships; Support Classroom Literacy; Build a STEM Fund.
