Accelerating innovation in DC Public Schools

DC Public Schools is making tremendous progress

Locally and nationally, education leaders point to DCPS as a model for improvement and innovation. DC Ed Fund has raised over $120 million in high-impact, private investments to support DCPS’ transformation from a historically under-performing school district to one that is nationally recognized for its student achievement growth. 

For DC Public Schools to continue its rapid trajectory as the nation’s fastest-improving urban school district, support from the philanthropic community is essential.

OUR MISSION

The DC Education Fund has been supporting DC Public Schools, one of the nation’s fastest improving school districts, since 2008. We do this by raising start-up capital for the district’s most innovative programs. In the last decade, Ed Fund has raised over $120M from foundations, businesses, and individuals to seed some of the most catalytic drivers of change.  As DCPS’ primary philanthropic partner, our dollars allow the district to accelerate programs, test cutting-edge ideas, and be a national proof point on how to drive outcomes through innovation.

Learn how past investments have helped accelerate DCPS' trajectory as the fastest-improving urban school district in the nation.
