We operate to make a difference

The Dillard Center for the Arts Foundation (DART) is the 501(c)3 non-profit organization that provides financial and program support for the School Board of Broward County's Dillard High School for the Performing and Visual Arts (DCA). Thanks to generous donors, the DART Foundation bridges the gap between public funding and the needs of a quality arts education, enhancing educational, professional, and artistic opportunities for current and future DCA students.

Founded in 2017, the DART Foundation has worked with the school toward a shared vision: to offer the highest quality of tuition-free arts education to students from all across Broward County. By offering consistent, holistic support year after year, the DART Foundation has enabled DCA to remain at the forefront of public arts education among an increasingly competitive national field.
