Professional quality performances in a year
Denver School of the Arts Friends Foundation raises money to support students, providing funding for the necessary lessons and supplies for an arts education. In addition to student support, DSA Friends administers funds for the numerous professional artists who work with the students.
The academic and artistic excellence at DSA is evident from the millions of dollars offered to students in college scholarships, our Blue distinguished rating within DPS, and the incredible careers our graduates pursue. Giving to the Friends Foundation is more than a tax-deductible donation, it is an investment in the value of arts education and an investment in the success of these young artists.
Every dollar received by DSA Friends enhances the school’s ability to deliver a high-quality, public arts education and curriculum to middle and high school students, bridging the gap between district funding and the real costs of an arts curriculum.
The DSA Student Success Fund works to ensure the success of DSA students is not limited by financial resources or hardships.
Employing over 200 professional artists and scholars, this program provides a breadth of professional art expertise to DSA students.
Outreach programs align with the mission of DSAFF to strengthen inclusiveness and diversity within DSA and the community.
