1,000 Dreams Fund 2023 Annual Report: Celebrating Seven Years of Making Dreams Come True!

As we look back on 2023 — while celebrating all SEVEN of our years of making dreams come true — we are so inspired.

Inspired by the talented young women we’ve been able to positively impact; inspired by you, our supporters and partners; and inspired by all the goodness that is to come. 

I hope that you, too, are inspired by what 1,000 Dreams Fund has been up to this past year! As you read through our Annual Report, please don’t forget to take a moment to place yourself within the broader picture of our impact. 

Our mission is to open as many doors as possible for high school, college, and graduate-level women in need through the programs we’ve developed. 

We’ve adopted a particular focus on serving women in industries where they remain underrepresented, including tech, gaming & esports — and more. 

We have been able to grow in important ways to better serve our beneficiaries over the last seven years — and we’ve implemented transformative programs and funding opportunities that have positively changed the lives of countless young women with big dreams.

We’ve made grants to women in 10 countries and 41 states.

We’ve provided 700+ hours of mentorship.

We’ve granted $843,000 in microgrants and scholarships since our launch!

We invite you to review our Annual Report for an in-depth look into the broader picture of our impact and how we’ve empowered women nationwide and globally with scholarship funding, mentorship, and career development opportunities. 

In this report, you’ll find the details of our focus pillars — FundHER, MentorHER, HireHER — and you’ll get to meet some of the girls who have benefited from our programming.

For the supporters of our work, you play a critical role in our ability to make all of this possible. We thank you for your partnership.

At the end of the day, it doesn’t take a whole lot to make a big difference. Here’s to another successful seven years — and beyond!
