I Give for Team DPS

I Give for Team DPS is an employee giving campaign which encourages a culture of philanthropy in Denver Public Schools. Funds raised through this campaign support programs such as afterschool programs, A to Z Fund Classroom Grants, Career Development, FACE Centers, middle school sports, and other initiatives that help to make sure every student, in every school, has the tools and resources to reach their highest potential.

New this year: the Team DPS Employee Giving Campaign will last the entire school year. See below for details on prizes and participate early for the greatest chance to win.
