The 1,000 Dreams Fund is a non-profit whose purpose is to support the dreams of talented young American women in need with micro-grants. We believe that big expenses should never stand in the way of big dreams.
Your donation will help women's ski jumpers on their journey to the 2018 Winter Games and more 1,000 Dreams Fund "Girls on the Rise" in 2018!
Join us in supporting these amazing women as they break barriers and break records.
We would love to have you join us a a part of the 1,000 Dreams Fund team!
Olympic hopeful and USA Nordic Women's Ski Jumper Abby Ringquist is paying it forward by teaming up with the 1,000 Dreams Fund to help us fund more "girls on the rise" next year!
It has been Abby's life-long dream to compete in the Olympics. Abby, now 28, missed competing in the last Winter Olympics in Sochi by just one spot, due to a lack of funding.
Despite her devastating setback in 2014, Abby got focused and is stronger than ever. Not only is she training around-the-clock, she is holding three jobs to help fund her sports dream while attending college. With a medal now in sight, Abby is currently competing to qualify for Team USA in the 2018 Winter Olympics.
Abby’s story and journey embodies what many hard-working young women have to grapple with today. Thousands of American girls have big dreams--in sports and beyond--but little funding to achieve them.
We want to change that. With as little as $10 donation, you can help Abby, her fellow USA Nordic female ski jumping teammates and future 1DF “girls on the rise” reach their dreams.
In fact, you can meet a few of the amazing young women who will be benefitting from our #FundGirlsOntheRise fundraiser in our video HERE! Also 15% of the total we raise will go to USA Nordic to benefit Abby and her female teammates on their journey to the Winter Games!
