1,000 Dreams Fund’s BroadcastHER Initiative

1,000 Dreams Fund supports talented young women and non-men following their dreams across a variety of industries. Our BroadcastHER Initiative and grant programs are designed to support women who are pursuing their dreams in content creation and gaming, while raising awareness for the continued gender gap in financial funding for non-men in the ever-expanding gaming and broadcasting space.

“This initiative will provide critical funding while boosting awareness around the shortage of support for these creative young women in the digital broadcasting space.”

— Christie Garton, Founder and CEO of 1,000 Dreams Fund
