Volunteer

We are extremely grateful for the time and talents provided by the countless members of our community, and lucky to have a community so involved. We have a number of volunteer opportunities available for alumni and parents who want to stay involved long after their time as a student or student parent has ended.

Volunteer Opportunities for Alumni

Kent Denver’s alumni and development programs are only successful with the help of our countless volunteers. If you would like to volunteer for any of the alumni programs listed below in Denver or in your home city, please contact Holly Downs ’00 at hdowns@kentdenver.org or (303) 770-7660 ext. 354.

Class Activities/Reunions

A successful reunion requires the efforts of many class volunteers. Reunion planning usually begins in the year leading up to your reunion—so if your class year ends in "3" or "8" now is the time to step forward and volunteer for Alumni Weekend 2018!

Annual Fund/Class Agents

Class Agents are responsible for making sure their class is represented in each year’s Kent Denver Fund total. We ask Class Agents to encourage their classmates to contribute to the Fund on a yearly basis to ensure that current students receive the same level of education that they did. Most of a Class Agent’s work consists of signing letters and following up with telephone calls and emails.

Regional Events

Kent Denver alumni can be found in every major city in the U.S., and in many cities abroad. To find out who's in your area, or to organize a local “mini-reunion,” please contact Holly Downs ’00.

Kent Denver Fund Parents’ Division

Last year, nearly 70 current Kent Denver parents served as volunteers for the Kent Denver Fund’s Parents Division, and with their help, parents contributed more than 55% of the $1,587,346 raised by the Kent Denver Fund during the 2015-16 school year, and volunteers played a key role in this success. To see how you can help this year and in the future, please contact Carly Einstein, Director of Annual Giving, at 303 770-7660 ext. 252 or ceinstein@kentdenver.org for more information.
