Your Generosity Impacts Lives

The mission of Denver Christian is to “inspire and equip children of Christian parents to engage the world with Christ’s transforming power and love.”  Your faithful giving has enabled Denver Christian to provide excellent Christ-centered education for over 100 years.  Thank you for your faithful and generous support of Denver Christian School.

Annual Loyalty Fund

Every fall we kick off our Annual Loyalty Fund. The generous contributions made each school year through the Loyalty Fund are allocated in the following school year to support educational, operational, and staffing initiatives that have the most significant daily impact on our students’ growth. One of the ways we raise money for the Loyalty Fund is through the annual auction. Each spring our entire community gathers together for this event. Save the date for DC’s Auction on Saturday, April 5, 2025. Questions email auction@denverchristian.org.

A donation to DC is an eternal investment in our kids, our school, and our world. Your gifts allow us to create a margin of excellence to expand and enrich student opportunities and experiences. The Loyalty Fund impacts students’ academic and spiritual life by providing the best practices in teaching, technology upgrades, enhanced student safety & security, athletic and performing arts improvements, and scholarships. Your gift makes a difference!

We encourage everyone to be a part of DC’s Loyalty Fund in the fall each year. DC’s fiscal year runs through June 30; however, your gift is welcome at any time!

We have hundreds of contributors who give generously every year! Additional giving comes from grandparents, alumni, alumni parents and friends of DC. We ask that each donor prayerfully consider the amount to give. We do not have a designated amount for giving–every gift is appreciated and matters, whatever the amount.
