Deep Ellum Entertainment District
The Deep Ellum Foundation exists to serve, develop, protect, preserve, and enhance the community of Deep Ellum while nurturing the ongoing developments, art, music, culture, and commercial interests of our community. We operate exclusively as a nonprofit 501(c)(3) corporation to raise and distribute public funds within the community to enhance the interests of the neighborhood as a whole. At present the Deep Ellum Foundation manages the Deep Ellum Public Improvement District, funds the Deep Ellum Dog Park, contributes to the Deep Ellum Arts Festival and Mural Competition and maintains an office which acts as a center of government affairs for the neighborhood. In addition, the Deep Ellum Foundation, in coordination with the Deep Ellum Association and other community groups, strives to provide a unified neighborhood voice to the city.
