EVENT DATE: May 11, 2013
Given we have been blessed to make it to the age of 30, our birthday wish this year is to make a difference. We have decided to raise money for a good cause and we kindly ask that you support a charity we both believe in, D.R.E.A.M. NYC.
D.R.E.A.M. stands for ‘Developing Responsible Economically Advanced Model – Citizens’. The Foundation is a cutting edge, financial education and advocacy 501 (c) 3 non-profit serving today’s urban youth.
We believe in the Foundation's mission, which is focuses on one of our country's main issues amongst low-income groups: financial illiteracy. Financial decision making has become ever more complex and many of our youth still need targeted education in this area; especially given the hard times the country and the world is facing at the moment.
In addition, we are inspired by President Obama's Advisory Council on Financial Capability and will be taking a more active role in pushing the financial literacy agenda by joining the Board of Advisors of D.R.E.A.M. NYC.
To this end, here’s how you can help us - DONATE today!
Please donate any amount you can! $5, $10, $15...Every little helps!
Here is what your donation could do:
$25 will purchase reading and instruction materials for a scholar
$50 will assist a scholar with starting a personal savings account for their college tuition
$100 will subsidize a scholar's participation in the "Invest in Success" program, a three year institute designed for educating high school students on financial literacy through one-on-one mentorship, education workshops and hands-on money management experiences
$500 will assist with funding new initiatives and programming
$1,000 will contribute to the endowment fund, which will solidify the longevity of the organization
Thank you for considering this great cause.
