Empowering Tomorrow’s Leaders Through The New Media Arts & Financial Literacy.

Duke Media Foundation is a 501 ( c ) 3 non-profit organization with a distinct emphasis on offering new media arts and financial literacy to inner-city youth ages 14 thru 18, in South Los Angeles, California. The combined focus of these two disciplines is what separates Duke Media from all other programs. The organization was founded in 2008 by actor, director, producer and humanitarian, Bill Duke.


The Duke Media Foundation’s mission is to seek to train and empower under served and gifted high school students in the disciplines of new media arts, financial literacy, the science of branding and entrepreneurship in preparation for careers in the new digital media age. By focusing on populations that are underrepresented in the Media and Finance industries, the Duke Media Foundation aims to usher today’s youth into the emerging global economy by preparing them with tools for the rapidly changing new media environment.
