Invest in Dreamers


Our investors—major donors to the Dream Project—are an integral part of the work we do.

We recognize that your investment is more than just a financial gift—it’s a demonstration of your values, a belief in the power of working together, and a commitment to support the tremendous potential of immigrant students. Many investors support the Dream Project with a gift of $10,000 or more per year. Others make a personal drive for additional funding to the Dream Project through house parties, corporate support, and foundation gifts.

A special thanks to each of these generous Dream Project Investors!

This incredibly successful initiative was made possible by ACT for Alexandria who awarded the Dream Project a Capacity Building Grant in 2018. We also deeply appreciate Susan Kelly from Kelly Strategies, who helped frame and build this initiative.

We continue to seek Dream Investors that can join us in ensuring continued sustainable growth for the Dream Project with a generous $10,000 gift for our 10th Anniversary in 2020-2021.

Your investment directly supports high-achieving immigrant students and rewards their perseverance at a time of high uncertainty and mounting obstacles. More than that, you generous contribution helps immigrant students achieve their dreams and change their trajectory and that of their families for generations to come.
