Sweet Dreams Success

Be part of a challenge gift that will help keep our 2018 Dreamer students on track to college and career


Dear Dream Makers, 
 
Thanks to your collective efforts, we raised more than $36,000 at this year's Sweet Dreams event. Dream Makers have raised more than $150,000 over the past seven years to support the 2018 King Dreamers as they've grown from first to 7th graders! 
 
Your donations help the Des Moines "I Have a Dream" Foundation provide long-term academic support, mentoring and enrichment activities for kids who wouldn't otherwise have the resources they need to succeed. All of your money stays in our community and makes a difference! 
 
As you heard last night, "I Have a Dream" recently received a challenge: If we can raise $225,000, an anonymous donor will match that money dollar-for-dollar to ensure that these Dreamers have the support they need as they go through 8th grade and onto high school. 
 
Will you make a pledge to continue your support of the Dreamers? Your gift or pledge of $1,000 or more will be matched dollar-for-dollar, and you have up to five years to make the gift! To pledge, simply email Emily. By doing so, you are truly opening the door to dreams for disadvantaged students in Des Moines and strengthening our community.
 
Thank you for all your support for the Dreamers! Find lots of photos from the event here.
 
Thank you, 
Emily Hamilton, Executive Director

See who was there! We had a record turnout for this year's event as well as a stunning home and spectacular weather for Sweet Dreams.

Dream Maker donations directly impact the local students involved in the Des Moines "I Have a Dream" Foundation, which motivates and empowers children from low-income communities to reach their education and career goals by providing a long-term program of mentoring, tutoring and enrichment as well as tuition assistance for higher education.
