2018 Presenting Sponsor

The Achieve Gala is the DPS Foundation’s annual fundraiser to support the more than 92,000 students and nearly 200 schools in DPS. We invite you to join us for Achieve Gala 2018 when Denver Public Schools students – more than ever before – take center stage. See a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the Gala through the eyes of student producers; get a sneak peek as North High School and STRIVE Prep-Excel come together for their spring musical; and of course, hear how DPS – and you – are helping students past and present create strong futures. It’s a not-to-be-missed event!

2017 Achieve Gala Recap

This year was our 25th anniversary Achieve Gala where we “Celebrated Yesterday and Embraced Tomorrow” to see how far we’ve come in the past 25 years and where we’ll go in the future for DPS students. This year’s gala featured a special musical ensemble performance by DPS student groups as well as a DPS graduate speaker, a senior student speaker, and an elementary student speaker.  Check out what we’ve accomplished over the past 25 years.
