Colorado Gives Day

What is Colorado Gives DAy 

Colorado Gives Day is a state wide movement that allows individuals and companies to donate to non-profit organizations on the first Tuesday of December each year through Community First Foundation. 

You can be a part of transforming urban public education by supporting DSST Public Schools! Our world-class schools are proving that all students, regardless of race or socioeconomic status, can achieve academic success and be well prepared for college and the 21st century workforce.
