Denver Scholarship Foundation Virtual Gala Raises over $1M!


Thanks to your immense and overwhelming generosity, we are still reliving the magic of the Denver Scholarship Foundation (DSF) Virtual Gala 2020: Celebrating with Spirit. We invited you to invest in the future of our DSF Scholars during an unprecedented time, and your response was extraordinary!

The final numbers are in! With heartfelt gratitude to our community and each of you who joined us during Spirit Week, we are excited to share that we raised over $1 million with the help of the Colorado Opportunity Scholarship Initiative (COSI). And, thanks to our generous Presenting Sponsor, Stead Family Foundation, these gifts are even more impactful, as every dollar contributed will go directly to scholarships and wraparound supports, helping to make college possible for hundreds of Denver students.

Today, we are thankful to have you as DSF’s partner in inspiring and empowering students of Denver Public Schools to enroll in and graduate from college with a certificate, associate degree, or bachelor’s degree. Your support is helping our students keep their forward momentum to the commencement stage.

On behalf of the DSF staff, and the entire 2020 Gala Committee, thank you to our sponsors, donors, and community!
