YOU ARE INVITED TO THE 2016 DREAM-MAKER DINNER

 

The “I Have a Dream” Foundation of Boulder County is a drop-out prevention and career and college preparation program for low-income youth in the St. Vrain Valley and Boulder Valley School Districts. The children, called Dreamers, participate in a year-round program of mentoring, tutoring, cultural enrichment, and community service activities from elementary school through high school. Upon high school graduation, each Dreamer is eligible to receive up to $10,000 to use towards college or post-secondary education.
While there’s no cost to attend, in lieu of ticket sales, you will be asked to make a donation to help launch
a new Dreamer Class at Thunder Valley K-8 in Carbon Valley and fulfill the dreams of 50 children. The entire community prospers when children have the opportunity to fulfill their potential. Please register today to save your spot for this exciting Inaugural Dream-Maker Dinner!
Donations of $250 or greater will also qualify for a Colorado Child Care Contribution Credit, meaning you have the opportunity to receive over 50% of your donation back on your taxes!
