Adopt-a-Student

The Adopt-A-Student program funds students with the greatest need for financial support in our Archdiocese of Denver Catholic schools with a $3,000 scholarship. Students selected to participate in the program are hand-picked by their principals, based on need and family involvement in the school. The program is Seeds of Hope’s most popular tuition assistance program, and is designed specifically for an interactive experience between the student and donor. The relationships formed are unique and tend to be lasting, as many of our Adopt-a-Student donors recommit to supporting their student through completion of elementary school.

INTERACT WITH YOUR STUDENT!

As mentioned above, Adopt-A-Student donors have the unique opportunity to interact with their students. Each student sends donor updates at Christmas and Easter, and donors are invited to meet their students at an annual Adopt-A-Student event. Additionally, each donor receives a report at the end of the school year to update them on the student’s progress. The report details the student’s strengths and accomplishments as well as areas in which the student continues to work. If you would like more information about the Adopt-A-Student program, please contact Gina Wilson by phone at 303.715.3216 or by email at Gina.Wilson@SeedsofHopeDenver.org.
