Give

You can make college possible for students in Denver. 

Join us Today!


It's easy to quantify the return on your investment in real estate or the stock market. But an investment in a student's education can't be measured. It's exponential. It strengthens our community. And it's easy to see what a difference it makes in the lives of each of our students. 

Your gift of $25, $50, $100 or any amount will join with other gifts to make college possible. 

Your gift can take the form of a one-time contribution or a monthly gift.  

If you'd like to make a bigger impact, keep reading about additional opportunities to join our cause.

Support the Ed Gala

Join us for our annual Ed Gala held each fall. Each year this signature fundraising event is attended by 1,000 business and community leaders and raises more than a million dollars for our programs and scholarships to help DPS graduates succeed in college. Click here for more information about our 2014 Ed Gala, or contact Erin Roth at eroth@denverscholarship.org or 303-640-6568 for sponsorship opportunities.


Sponsor a Future Center

Denver Scholarship Foundation operates Future Centers -- or college resource centers -- inside 16 Denver high schools. Each Future Center may be sponsored by businesses or organizations in the community. Sponsorships allow your organization to brand the Future Center inside the high school and on DSF materials. Combined with employee volunteer events inside your Future Center, the story of your organization’s support for the higher education goals of Denver’s students would make a compelling press release for the media.

For more information, contact Emily Schulman at eschulman@denverscholarship.org or 303.951.4155.


Workplace Giving

DSF participates in a variety of workplace giving campaigns for private, federal, state and local employees through Community Shares of Colorado. If your company or agency participates in workplace giving campaigns, you can designate DSF as your charity of choice, and a portion of each paycheck will be deducted as a charitable, tax-free donation. This is an easy way to support DSF on a regular basis at the level that you chose.  

Talk to your workplace giving coordinator to find out how to begin!

If your company does not operate a workplace giving campaign, you can still set up a monthly donation to DSF through ColoradoGives.org.  Just click "recurring donation" on the donation form.


Planned Giving

You can leave a lasting legacy in our community by including the Denver Scholarship Foundation in your estate plans, making a gift of stock or setting up a scholarship in memory/honor of a loved one.
