Fill the Gap and become a Perennial Patron!

DSA is a unique school with unique needs! The actual cost of educating a DSA student with an extraordinary arts and academic education is $6,709, however the 2018-19 DPS allocation for DSA students is $5,329 per student. In order to fully fund DSA’s nationally competitive arts and academics, we are faced with a gap. This gap is $1,380 per student.

With all DSA parents coming together to Fill the Gap with a monthly, unrestricted contribution, we will be able to provide quality educational programs in the arts and academics, capital improvements for DSA’s unique needs, increased security for DSA’s extended hours, and more. A school-wide culture of philanthropy is essential to the success of our students and fulfilling our mission…and together we will be stronger!

Your monthly support of the Fill the Gap Campaign at a level that fits your budget will help us reach our goal of 100% participation and is 100% tax deductible. Join the hundreds of DSA parents who are already supporting DSA and become a Perennial Patron! CLICK HERE to donate today!

Thank you for your support!

King Soopers Gift Cards

King Soopers gift cards is another way that we can raise money for the department. Funds raised through this program help pay for guest artists, materials, and field trips. We have to sell $5,000 or more to get our 5% donation, which we usually meet every other month. Help us meet our goal to get the donation every single month! It’s really easy–just get into the habit of loading your card once a week when you do your shopping. You can even reload them at the self-checkout lanes. You can also use the gift cards to pay for gas, beer, or liquor at the stores that sell those items. Get cards for your kids, spouses, and even out-of-town relatives who shop Kroger. 

If you need a new gift card or have any questions, please contact Jonathan Howard at jonathan_howard@dpsk12.org
