DC Ed Fund is incredibly grateful for the support from corporate and philanthropic partners who make Standing Ovation possible each year. 

Thank you to all of this year's generous sponsors!

Standing Ovation is an important annual tradition—it is the night when business and philanthropic leaders formally recognize DCPS’ extraordinary educators for their critical contributions to our community.
— Mark Ein, DC Ed Fund Board Chairman and Salutatorian Sponsor
