SPONSOR A DREAMER SCHOLAR

A donation of $3,000 per year for 10 years will sponsor one of 60 Dreamer Scholars for a new class. This donation level breaks down to about $8 per day and helps provide after-school programming services from first grade through high school graduation, along with a $10,000 last dollar scholarship for post-secondary education. When you sponsor a Dreamer Scholar, you collectively help sponsor a new Dreamer Scholar class in our community and you change a child’s life forever. Contact President & CEO Lori Canova to discuss the possibilities.
