What we do:
Day Dreams Foundation awards scholarships for extracurricular activities to children 18 and under that demonstrate financial need. We promote healthy lifestyles, community service, goal setting, academics, teamwork and respect for others.
Why we’re great:
Since awarding our first scholarship in March 2015, we have eliminated financial barriers for over 75 local youth and awarded over $20,000 in activity fees and equipment costs. In 2016, we awarded our first $1,500 renewable college scholarship.
Why does your organization deserve community financial support?
In 2016, we expanded our population served to include youth up to age 18 and reduced lunch recipients. We are run entirely by a volunteer board of directors who meet with families, plan fundraisers, and attend our scholarship winners’ events.
