Team DPS is the employee giving campaign for Denver Public Schools, supporting DPS students and classrooms through the Denver Public Schools Foundation.
In its first two years, the Team DPS campaign raised more than $100,000 to support students, classrooms and schools.
The 2013 Team DPS campaign begins on Monday, October 29th. All gifts made by Monday, December 31st will be matched dollar-for-dollar by a generous contribution from Superintendent Tom Boasberg. In addition, the DPS Foundation has been awarded a special one-time opportunity: every gift designated for the Fit, Fun & Literacy program will be matched 1:1 by the Salah Foundation. This is in addition to the 1:1 match from Superintendent Tom Boasberg. Therefore, gifts designated for Fit, Fun & Literacy will be matched 2:1. For example, $50 becomes $150, and $100 becomes $300!
