Scholarship recipient and donor reception

July 6, 2023

There is something special about meeting the people behind incredible generosity and its impact. Both on the receiving side and the giving.

This week 80 scholarship recipients and donors had the opportunity to meet one another during this event. They came together to share their dreams, experiences, and excitement about connecting.

Both students and donors were very engaged. “I have been to many scholars’ events in my life, this is the first group I’ve seen openly network among themselves where I didn’t have to do any directing,” said the Senior Director of Special Funds & Scholarships for The Denver Foundation, Sharon Harper. “There was great energy. The donors were very appreciative of the students they met.”
