Trinity Hansen, a recent DCIS Foundation scholarship recipient, spent the summer of 2017 in Shanghai, China. She lived with a host family, studied the language and immersed herself in Chinese culture. Reflecting on her time abroad, she wrote:

“I am extremely humbled by my experience. Not only in the way that I have become more appreciative of what I have, but I have also realized the privilege of travel. It is unfortunate that not everyone is able to take advantage of such incredible opportunities and I would like to encourage people to try. Financial restrictions seem daunting but it is entirely possible. I would not have been able to embark on my journey of a lifetime without the DCIS Foundation scholarship, so I would like to take this time to say thank you. I am eternally grateful, I will remember my trip for the rest of my life, and that is invaluable.”

Experiences like Trinity’s transform students into confident, informed and compassionate individuals, enhancing their own self-image and their image of the world. These opportunities encourage students to become problem solvers and leaders who take action in their communities.

It is our hope that you will commit to being among the people and organizations that support our work. We are excited to announce the DCIS Foundation Passport Dinner will take place Thursday, April 26, 2018 at a beautiful new space – the Denver Museum of Nature & Science. Last year the Foundation’s annual dinner raised more than $62,000. This year, with your help, we will surpass that amount and make an even bigger difference for the students of the DCIS schools.
