DSA Friends Foundation News:

DSA Friends Foundation

At the beginning of each school year, DSAFF launches our annual fundraising campaign, Fill the Gap. Denver School of the Arts currently faces a “gap” of $1,500 per student. 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.

Fill the Gap was started as a way to unite all DSA families in raising money for the school as a whole, instead of by individual department. DSA is tuition free, but donation dependent.  While funds raised benefit every arts department through funding guest artists & equipment, they also go towards academics, capital improvements, building safety/security, and technology upgrades.
