The Time Is Now



Like everything else in your life over the last year, Access Opportunity's annual fundraising event - Raise a Class - is going virtual for 2021. We know you have Zoom fatigue and we know you're a little over virtual gatherings, so we've designed this event to be an interactive experience that can be watched on your own time. Your ticket to this virtual, on-demand experience is the Raise a Class Event in a Box. The Box, which contains some familiar Raise a Class goodies, also includes links that will take you to videos that will make you laugh, cry, and inspire you to donate and deepen your support of Access Opportunity and our students.


Your Raise a Class Event in a Box will arrive by Thursday, February 25, 2021*.


February 25, 2021 at 12:00 a.m. (MST) through March 4, 2021 at 8:00 p.m. (MST): Raise a Class Virtual silent auction is open for bidding on our perennially fabulous auction items and making your donation. 


*Unfortunately, we cannot deliver boxes outside of Colorado's Front Range. Live outside of the Front Range and still want to participate? Good news! Register by February 24, 2021 and you'll get an event program book in the mail, plus full access to the on-demand virtual event (stay tuned to your inbox starting February 25, 2021).


Our vision is equity in education for all students.


Raise a Class is Access Opportunity's signature annual fundraising event. Raise a Class offers a unique twist on the traditional gala. Guests enjoy food stations featuring culinary delights from some of Denver and Boulder's favorite restaurants; beer, wine, and custom cocktails; a fun and slightly irreverent auction; and live music. The highly-anticipated annual event is attended by over 500 guests. Raise a Class is a beloved gathering of the Access Opportunity community and a celebration of our students. For the health and safety of our community, and to ensure compliance with local health restrictions and guidelines during the Covid-19 pandemic, Raise a Class 2021 will be a virtual event. Even virtually, the event promises to stand out from the crowd by offering a unique experience in support of Access Opportunity's mission of supporting high-achieving, low-income students.
