I Give for Team DPS


Each year, hundreds of Denver Public Schools educators join together to support the I Give for Team DPS employee giving campaign.

As a member of Team DPS, you give so much of your time and talents to our schools and students each and every day. No matter what your role is in DPS, your personal dedication to the campaign will send a powerful message to the community about the importance of a strong public school education. Your gift of any size shows that you are proud to play for Team DPS! Most importantly, your donation will be supporting the nearly 200 DPS schools and more than 92,000 students.

How It Works

The annual I Give for Team DPS Employee Giving Campaign is November 6-December 8, 2017! Here’s how you can participate:

Payroll deduction is the easiest and most cost-effective way to support DPS schools and students year-round.

  • An amount of your choice from each paycheck is donated to the DPS Foundation. Click here to download a payroll deduction form.
    • You may return the form to Kim_Martinez@dpsk12.org or via mail/in person to 1860 Lincoln Street, 9th Floor, Denver, CO 80203.
  • Or, make a one-time gift:
    • Many DPS educators choose to save their donation for Colorado Gives Day, which takes place on Tuesday, December 5, 2017. All donations given on December 5 through Coloradogives.org will be increased thanks to the $1 Million Incentive Fund.
    • A secure, online donation can be made at anytime here. *In case online donations are down, please donate via Colorado Gives (listed above) or call us to donate over the phone at (720) 423-3877.
