Fill the Gap

Each fall the Denver School of the Arts Friends Foundation leads the Fill the Gap campaign to raise necessary funding for the exemplary education at Denver School of the Arts. This “gap” is the difference between what it costs to provide a comprehensive arts/academic education per student and what we receive per student from the district. Funds raised in this campaign support the Visiting Artists Program, which is a cornerstone of DSA curriculum and an essential component of the 2020-2021 school year, providing additional valuable instruction to DSA students. Your Fill the Gap contributions also support technology advances necessary for art in the 21st century, including computers, sound equipment, software, and more. In the 2020-21 school year, technology is the foundation of our learning. Additionally, you are supporting students directly, as money raised for Fill the Gap provides financial assistance to individual students in need through our Support Our Students Fund. Your donations help maintain the magic and excellence of DSA through this unique school year.

In Stagecraft & Design we use the funds from the Fill the Gap campaign to pay for the various guest artists that work with students in our department. These guest artists provide invaluable learning experiences and unique perspectives on professional careers in technical theatre. Additionally, we work in a field that requires a huge investment of money to keep our equipment up-to-date. The funds from the Fill the Gap campaign have helped us to be able to acquire professional level equipment, similar to what students will experience in the professional world.

Our goal is to have 100% participation in the Fill the Gap campaign for our department. You can participate at whatever level is financial possible for your family.

King Soopers Gift Cards

After the initial step of enrolling online and linking your loyalty card to our account, this should make it even easier to help raise money for our department because you will not have the extra step of loading money onto the card.
