Ways to Donate

Partnering with God’s work is an incredible way to invest in the lives of others. When you link arms with DSS, you’re aligning your heart and resources with our mission to bring hope to those students who are struggling. Your support helps them find confidence to work towards a brighter future.

The Denver Street School is 100% privately funded by people just like you. We don’t receive any federal or local government funding. Knowing that, we invite you to become a ministry partner and join us on this journey of bringing hope and healing to those who need it most.

401K Giving

A qualified charitable distribution or QCD satisfies the requirement to distribute funds from your retirement account, but it also avoids income tax on that same amount. How? If you send your required distribution direct to a charity like the Denver Street School, you get to exclude that distribution from your taxable income. In fact, you could satisfy the IRS rule and help the Denver Street School! What could be better?

The QCD is a wonderful way to benefit DSS and save you money on your taxes.
