An online fundraiser for CRI serving Denver Public Schools.

Community Resources, Inc., (CRI) is celebrating over 45 years that we have connected Denver Public Schools students with resources they need to develop their gifts and achieve their goals.

Programs have been significantly impacted by COVID-19 this year. CRI and the students that we serve need your help now more than ever. We have been forced to cancel our Spring and Fall in-person fundraising events this year and are therefore asking for your support as we shift to an online auction format.

All proceeds support CRI's programs, including Academic Mentors, Classroom Speakers, Family Nights, and Special Events.

Click here or use the menu above in the top-left hand corner View Items to view all auction items.

Once you place a bid you can set a "Max Bid Amount", which is only visible to you, and the system will automatically place the next incremental bid for that item if someone attempts to outbid your offer. This setting can be deleted or changed at any time through your bidder account.
  • RECEIVE BIDDING NOTIFICATIONS: When you register, click the option to "Receive Bidding Notifications" and you will be contacted by email or text when you have been outbid.
