Annual Report 2017

 

Dear DPS friend and supporter,

This was a special year for the Denver Public Schools Foundation, as we celebrated our 25th anniversary of investing in DPS. Your commitment has allowed us to create additional meaningful relationships within the community, impact the lives of more than 92,000 students and approximately 4,300 teachers, and continue to serve as advocates for public education in the broader community. We take this time to reflect on the incredible accomplishments and stories that your support made possible in this year’s annual report.

Every donor and partner who has joined with us this year and for the past two decades has literally helped build the strong foundation from which we operate. As we look ahead, we are excited by the opportunities to do even more…with you.

Today and always for OUR kids,

Verónica Figoli, President & CEO | Denver Public Schools Foundation

DPS Community Days

June 2017
DPS Community Days

Through special partnerships created by the DPS Foundation, DPS families and the Denver community took part in athletic and cultural events that benefit our schools. From watching Denver Nuggets, Colorado Avalanche and Colorado Rockies games, to seeing performances at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts Complex, students were able to experience arts and culture within our community. As an added bonus, a portion of these ticket proceeds benefited DPS students and schools! “I wanted to express my gratitude for offering discounted tickets to the Secret Garden performance at the DCPA. This is such a lovely story that my 7-year-old has really enjoyed reading with me! And, even though we really wanted to attend the show, the regular ticket prices were a little out of our budget. The discounted prices are just what we needed to make it possible for us to attend.” – Sonia, DPS parent
