It doesn’t take a whole lot to make a big difference.

1,000 Dreams Fund Story

1,000 Dreams Is Our Bold Goal To Empower 1,000 Girls Nationwide - & More!

We believe that big obstacles should never stand in the way of big dreams.

There are more than 20 million high school, college and graduate school-aged women in the U.S., and every single one is working toward a big dream. So many students lack access to the right resources that help accelerate their success. With the rising cost of college and the price of extracurriculars lofty, those dreams can also feel totally out of reach.

But they’re not — and the 1,000 Dreams Fund is here to empower students to power on toward their greatest ambitions.

We make strategic investments in students that help fuel their dreams through our 3 Pillars: FundHER, MentorHER and HireHER.
