Sponsor a Dreamer

A donation of $3,000 per year for 10 years will sponsor one of 50 Dreamer Scholars for a new class. This donation level breaks down to about $8 per day. Thanks to the Colorado Child Care Contribution Credit, the net cost is likely to be even lower. When you sponsor a Dreamer Scholar, you change a life and help us work towards sponsorship of a new Dreamer Scholar class and the fulfillment of our mission.
