Celebrate Women’s History Month 2024 with 1,000 Dreams Fund!

March is here and with it comes our Women’s History Month celebration! We are thrilled to announce that our theme this year is Dare to Dream.

We invite you to Dare to Dream with 1,000 Dreams Fund this March. Thousands of young women with inspiring dreams from all walks of life and from cities, large and small, across the country apply to our programs each year. They dare to dream because we dare to dream. 

All through March, 1,000 Dreams Fund is hosting fundraisers, scholarship programs, and mentorship opportunities.

Check out our highlights, listed below, and learn more about how YOU can get involved!

  • Our 1,000 Dreams Fund ‘Dare to Dream’ Fundraiser
Hear from Founder, Christie Garton, on how YOU can help us Dare To Dream!

Causes and organizations focused on women and girls receive less than 2% of all charitable donations — less than 2%! 

It’s time to change that! With our Dare to Dream” Women’s History Month Fundraiser, we are raising funds to provide access to critical funding and resources along with meaningful mentor relationships to the students we serve in the U.S. and abroad each year. 

We invite you to help us support more women who dare to dream with your donation TODAY! What’s more, when you give during the first week of March, we’re matching your donation and doubling your impact — thanks to the generous support of 1DF Board of Directors member Lisa Cratty.

  • Tune into our “ Streams for Dreams” Twitch Charity Fundraiser in Partnership with Twitch Women’s Unity Guild – Friday, March 1 – Sunday, March 3

We’re kicking off the month with our annual Women’s History Month-themed Twitch Charity Event! This year, we’re teaming up with Twitch Women’s Unity Guild for the FIRST time during our annual #StreamsForDreams fundraiser. The goal? Continue to fund our BroadcastHER Grant that we created for women and femmes in content creation. The grant awards up to $1,500 to support these creators by funding things like hardware upgrades, equipment, or travel to conventions. 

We’re so excited to share that at least 50% of all funds raised during this time will be granted to Twitch Women’s Unity Guild members to help them attend TwitchCon 2024!

Tune into the action all weekend long, but you can also help us support our BroadcastHER Grant by fundraising with us.

  • Become a life-changing mentor through our MentorHER Initiative!

  • Our 1,000 Dreams Scholarship Fund

It’s an incredible change to get support for one’s dreams! Help us spread the word about this awesome opportunity.
