SHADE Donations Methods

SHADE is a non-profit corporation, organized under the laws of the District of Columbia, who’s operations are primarily funded by membership dues.  During the 2019-2020 School Year, SHADE elected not to conduct active fundraising activities in an effort to avoid conflicting fundraising activities with the various arts departments within Ellington School.  Thus it is crucial that all parents, students, faculty, staff, alumni, alumni families and friends of Ellington join SHADE and submit their membership dues. 

In addition to membership dues, SHADE accepts donations as a supplement to its financial resources.  While donations are not tax deductible they will, ultimately, serve to support SHADE’s mission of advocacy and advancement of the needs of the Duke Ellington School of the Arts community.

Donations may be made through the following methods:
1. PayPal:
2. CashApp: $SHADEFunds
3. Check or Money Order Payable to SHADE
