Holiday Dreams: The “I Have A Dream” Foundation of Boulder County’s (IHDF) annual Holiday Dreams program connects community members to Dreamer Scholars and their families to help brighten the holidays and provide gifts to those in need. Donors receive the “wishlist” of a family (from sizes of two to 10) in our program with gift ideas valued at $40 each. Donors then purchase and deliver the wrapped gifts at a designated drop-off location to be distributed to the families before the school’s Winter Break.
Learning Center Wish Lists: We also offer the option to gift Wish List items to our learning centers. Supporters donate requested items to one of our learning centers throughout Boulder County. Donations made toward the Learning Center Wish List initiative will benefit over 50 Dreamer Scholars and guests who utilize those facilities year-round, after school and during the summer.
College Care Package Program: In 2014, we also started the College Care Package program to support our Dreamer Scholar alumni who are away from home in college, by sending them care packages. It is wonderful to witness the different ways community members put together creative packages to support our college Dreamer Scholars during their finals.
