Research shows that a college graduate earns approximately $1 million more over his/her lifetime than peers who do not graduate. Improving Denver Public School’s college graduation rate makes the community more attractive for businesses seeking to invest, expand or relocate.
Denver Public Schools students represent Denver’s future workforce, which is projected to grow increasingly sophisticated in the coming years. Supporting the Denver Scholarship Foundation (DSF) now will enable you to tap into a well-trained workforce in the future. Here are some ways businesses and employees can help our movement.
Future Center Sponsorships ($25,000)
The Denver Scholarship Foundation operates "Future Centers" -- or college resource centers -- inside DPS high schools. A Future Center sponsorship allows your organization to brand the Future Center inside the high school and on DSF materials.
DSF Scholarship Application ($5,000)
One exclusive sponsorship of the online DSF Scholarship application is available each year. Our application sponsor has the opportunity brand the online form, which is viewed by approximately 2,000 Denver Public School students and their parents annually.
Financial Aid Workshops ($1,500)
Each spring, DSF hosts a series of workshops at DPS high schools to help seniors and their parents complete complicated financial aid forms. Sponsors may place their logo on the signage and press materials promoting the workshops, as well as on any collateral materials you would like to provide.
Sponsoring one or more of these monthly, one-hour breakfast meetings will provide your organization with the opportunity to showcase your support of education reform to local businesses and community leaders.
Ed Gala ($3,000 to $100,000)
Join us each fall for our annual Ed Gala at the Hyatt Regency Denver at Colorado Convention Center. All proceeds go directly toward DSF Programs and Scholarships to help DPS students achieve their college goals.
