Student Success Fund

Funded by the DSA Friends Foundation and the Fill the Gap Campaign, the Student Success Fund (SSF) was established in the fall of 2014 to ensure that all DSA students experience success and are not limited by financial resources. This fund provides assistance with DSA-related expenses such as lessons, art supplies, performance attire, tutoring, and more. The long-term goal of this fund is to increase the diverse population of Denver School of the Arts and ensure that all students have the financial resources to be successful. We will be able to measure the success of our fund by the ability to maintain a diverse student population at DSA with the help of support offered through this fund.

The fund is open all school year long with quarterly deadlines to distribute funds. For more information on the Student Success Fund, please visit the DSA Friends website or contact

DSA Friends Foundation

At the beginning of each school year, DSA Friends 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.
