At 1,000 Dreams Fund, we’re so fortunate to have an incredible Board of Directors who share in our mission of opening as many doors as possible for young women to realize their educational and professional dreams while removing barriers due to lack of funding and debt.
To celebrate our Board, we are starting a new “1DF Board Spotlight” series so you can learn a bit more about this amazing group of accomplished individuals who work behind-the-scenes with us at 1,000 Dreams Fund.
