An Achievable Dream relies on the support of our donors in order to provide for the needs of our Dreamers. To support the day-to-day elements of the program (extended school days, Saturday school, field trips, etc) as well as long-term needs (scholarships for college), our organization hosts two major fundraising events during the year. These events provide fellowship for donors and fun in support of a good cause.
