During Denver Scholarship Foundation Virtual Gala 2020: Celebrating with Spirit, we are taking a moment to celebrate a few of our partnerships that make our work possible.
For the past three years, Alpine Bank has been a proud supporter of Denver Scholarship Foundation (DSF) and its mission to support Denver Public Schools students on their journeys to and through college graduation. The partnership began with support of the DSF Annual Gala and expanded with the creation of a named scholarship for Latinx students attending Colorado colleges and universities. Alpine believes that scholarships are one of the best ways they can do the most good for Denver’s community.
DSF’s three-part program of college access, scholarship, and college success resonate with Alpine. “We believe that it takes a holistic approach, and DSF has found the secret sauce,” they said, referring to the wraparound services DSF provides beginning in high school and continuing through college graduation. “Alpine is proud to partner with the remarkable DSF community,” Alpine continued to share.
Alpine Bank has always taken a unique approach to supporting their community. As their founder Bob Young said, “if our communities do well then our bank will do well, and if our communities are not doing well then our banks will not do well.” This attitude has led them to support organizations like DSF, because “one of the first steps in supporting our community is supporting education.”
Alpine understands why it is important for the community to support students pursuing a postsecondary degree or certificate. “Having a degree provides additional opportunities for students in whatever field they desire. Every student should have access to pursue their dreams, regardless of their economic circumstances.”
DSF is proud to have the support of Alpine Bank as a supporter and we cannot wait to continue this strong relationship long into the future.
