Join us virtually on Thursday, May 13, 2021 from 6:00 – 6:50 MST for our signature fundraiser, Slice of Pi, to support DSST Public School’s mission of transforming urban public education by eliminating scholastic inequity and preparing all students for success in college and the 21st century.
Entirely free to attend, the 2021 Slice of Pi event will be hosted by DSST Board Member, Billy Brown, and will feature presentations from Board Members, current students and alumni. Attendees will also have the opportunity to make gifts to a Wishing Wall to underwrite critical funding needs at DSST and our schools. The event will conclude with a fireside chat with CEO and Co-Founder of Netflix, Reed Hastings.
$1 from every gift raised through our Slice of Pi event will be directed to the expansion of DSST’s Elevate Northeast Campus.
