Money donated to the Annual Fund supports DLS programming, facilities, and personnel. 

Annual Fund Goal for 2019-2020

100% Family Participation & $75,000

Our first and foremost goal is 100% participation. We want all families to invest in DLS, on any level. Whatever is meaningful for you, is meaningful for us. As it’s our 10 year anniversary, we like the idea of giving in 10s - $10, $100, $1000, etc. 

Our dollar goal is $75,000 by October 25. We have a $200k gap in our budget this year, and our goal is to raise that money through the Annual Fund, the Gala, year-round donations, and other ways to support DLS (Amazon Smile, King Soopers cards, etc).

Diversity in Learning

Our largest programming expense is providing diversity and differentiation within our curriculum. The Annual Fund supports traditional curriculum purchases, project based learning, field experiences, blended curriculum, and more!



Throughout the entire school (K-8) our culture is centered around the idea of being respectful, responsible, ready to learn, and safe (DLS4).  The Annual Fund supports social and emotional curriculum and implementation. The student support team and scholarships for students in need.



Equity is front and center for DLS. The Annual Fund supports professional development in equity for our teachers and staff, culturally responsive classrooms, uniform assistance, scholarships, and more!



DLS is a STEAM school - we value all the disciplines, (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) and believe children flourish when given the opportunity to engage in all these areas. The Annual Fund supports 3D printing curriculum, our arts and musical theatre programs, robotics, the Shakespeare Festival, and more!
