We Invest in Accelerating Progress
We make strategic investments in proven and promising programs and initiatives that support our teachers and fuel growth for our students. To date, we’ve granted more than $117 million to benefit DPS schools and initiatives.
Whole Child /
We support DPS’s Denver 2020 Whole Child Plan, recognizing that emotional, social and physical well-being is just as important as academic learning.
FACE Centers offer free wrap-around, multi-generational services to community members 16 or older in order to help them obtain critical life skills and increase their economic self-sufficiency and academic achievements.
Lights On After School is a partnership with DPS Foundation, Mile High United Way, and the City and County of Denver. It provides funding to ensure the sustainability of quality,
school-based afterschool programs during the critical 3-6 p.m. hours.
Participation in sports builds self-esteem, encourages a healthy lifestyle, improves school attendance and teaches invaluable principles of teamwork. The DPS Prep League enrolls 5,600 students in 17 different sports each year.
Teacher & School Leader Growth and Support
By supporting funds for our educators and unique initiatives across the district, we help to make sure all students have access to extraordinary opportunities.
Students take relevant courses while connecting with partner companies and higher education institutions for hands-on workplace experiences.
