We are HALFWAY there!
December 20, 2016

Friends - Thanks to your generosity we have reached the "HALFWAY" milestone today! That means the 1,000 Dreams Fund will be able to fund least See More

THE STORY:

***100% OF ALL FUNDING RAISED DURING THIS CAMPAIGN WILL GO DIRECTLY TO FUND EVEN MORE GRANTS FOR MORE TALENTED YOUNG WOMEN IN NEED NEXT YEAR!***

1,000 Dreams is our bold goal to provide 1,000 real girls nationwide with scholarship funding.

Millions of girls across America have big dreams about what they want to do with their lives, but they don’t have resources to make those dreams come true. They can’t afford the “extras” that make the difference in future success – from an opportunity to study abroad, to tech devices for budding young artists or journalists, to having those “extra-curricular” experiences that spark personal growth and connect them to mentors and careers.

In fact, over 50% of young women we surveyed lack easy access to funding, and 30% don’t even know where to look.

Additionally, students are spending over $15,000 out of their own or family’s pocket during their college years on extracurricular activities, saddling many with additional burdensome credit card debt.

YOUR DONATION will help us reach even more young women with our mission – when they need help the most.

Already the 1,000 Dreams Fund has provided over $40,000 in funding for to over 40 young women for items such as:
• Tech devices: A digital camera for a future photojournalist
• Conference, Tutoring & Exam Fees: Conference fees for a future education policy expert
• Travel: A mission trip for a future orthodontist
• Textbooks: Graduate school textbooks for a future occupational therapist

The 1,000 Dreams Fund is also committed to supporting a diverse group of young women in need, including:
• “First-generation” students
• Young women of color
• A diverse range of studies and career interests

Join us and make a real impact on the lives of these young women by making a donation TODAY!

MEET SOME OF THE AWESOME YOUNG WOMEN WE HAVE FUNDED SO FAR

Sanah, 18
There is no doubt that Sanah, a University of Texas-San Antonio student and a 1,000 Dreams Fund grantee, is going to change the world. And we are thrilled to provide her with a $1,000 grant to do it. From overcoming bullying to embracing her differences, she is truly an inspiration for girls everywhere!

Gracie, 18
Pursuing a career in the music industry is challenging. But try doing it while in high school like Gracie, a 1,000 Dreams Fund grantee, an up-and-coming singer/songwriter. Our grant helped Gracie take a trip to LA to build her music career while juggling her grades and activities as a full-time high school student.

Carolina, 18
Carolina has big plans for her future. You could describe her as a go-getter and an inspiration to girls everywhere. She immigrated to the United States–knowing absolutely no English–but Carolina has beaten all odds and is now a freshman at Kansas State University. Carolina's $500 grant from the 1,000 Dreams Fund is helping cover extra costs during her freshman year.
