It’s Graduation Season: Help Turn More Dreams Into Degrees in 2023!

It’s cap and gown season — and we love this time of year at 1,000 Dreams Fund.

We’re so excited to celebrate all the talented graduates we’ve been able to support this past school year — thanks to our generous community of donors. Over the last year, we’ve provided life-changing funding and micro-grants, many hours of mentorship, and so much more — and we couldn’t do it without you.

Look at all that we accomplished in 2022… 

  • The MentorHER Initiative generated more than 100 mentorships for women working toward their dreams and degrees.
  • 43% of the mentees served through MentorHER were women of color.
  • More than $15,000 in scholarships were granted to women pursuing STEAM degrees.
  • We funded more than 10 campus visits to colleges across the U.S. for high school juniors and seniors working toward their big college dreams.
  • We supported more than 75 women in need who identified as first-generation college students.

We want to keep this progress going for the next wave of students! 

You can join us in fueling the dreams of more inspiring graduates-to-be with a donation to 1,000 Dreams Fund during our Dreaming of Degrees fundraiser from May 1 – June 9.

These contributions ensure that we can continue uplifting those who are facing big hurdles to their big dreams and need your support.

Every dollar counts — and with every donation to Dreaming of Degrees, you’re opening doors to opportunity for more students! Check out our impact story from Micah here.


What’s really special about this fundraiser is that your donation will be matched 1:1 for double the impact for each week of the fundraiser!

We’d love your help in taking advantage of this INCREDIBLE opportunity to double our donations and fulfill more dreams in the next school year. 

Your generosity helps further our mission to help the next generation of grads take the steps they need to achieve their degrees.

Let’s do this!
