Annual Gala 2019

Event Details

Wednesday, September 25, 2019
5:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Join Denver Scholarship Foundation (DSF) for an evening with Geoffrey Canada, featured prominently in Waiting for Superman, and founder of Harlem Children’s Zone. Learn more about Mr. Canada on our blog here.

Proceeds from the Annual Gala will make it possible for thousands of Denver Public Schools’ graduates to complete a college degree. DSF collaborates with donors, supporters, educators, families, community colleges, universities, and technical colleges to build partnerships that drive resources and talent to support students on their way to the commencement stage at college graduation.

Thanks to the long-standing and generous support of the event’s anonymous presenting sponsor, all event costs are underwritten and every dollar raised will go directly to scholarships. Additionally, every dollar donated to the DSF Scholarship Fund will be matched as available by the Colorado Opportunity Scholarship Initiative (COSI), a program administered by the Colorado Department of Higher Education.

Join DSF to support students on their journey to and through college.
