Raised for Nonprofits

Deep Ellum Foundation

The Deep Ellum Foundation exists to enhance, improve, and market the neighborhood of Deep Ellum. We manage the Public Improvement District (PID) which Deep Ellum is in and work to raise and to distribute public funds within the community to enhance the interests of the neighborhood as a whole. We are charged with being Deep Ellum experts to help the neighborhood function to the best of its ability and to accurately convey Deep Ellum needs to the City of Dallas.
Deep Ellum is almost growing faster than we can keep up! Public safety and maintenance are always in the forefront of our efforts. In conjunction with individual businesses and property owners, we began the Deep Ellum Public Safety Program. This program allows us to gather funding to hire extra police officers during the weekend and extra security officers during the week. This program has been beneficial for the entire neighborhood and we hope to consistently expand it to include more officers and shifts. Additional agency needs include maintenance improvements in the form of increased lighting, trash can replacement, and landscape updates.
