We are a catalyst for change in Denver Public Schools
As the strategic fundraising partner for DPS, we work together to find and fund the highest impact investments.
We engage our community, educators and DPS to accelerate progress and we help to find the most impactful ways to empower teachers, fuel engaged learning, and support students and their families.
