Donate

Most organizations that work with youth eat up most of the donations they receive in administration costs. However since we keep our administration costs low and cover it with other income streams, we guarantee 100% of these donations will go towards serving youth in need directly. You will receive a picture and a letter from the youth who were directly impacted by your contribution.

All donations over $500 are tax-deductible. Below you will see a video that gives testament to how a donation made an impact in the lives of over 75 youth from 2 different schools on Chicago’s West-side. You will see how they were impacted by Fulfill The Dream and how they intern impacted their community!


$50 Donation

$50 Donation will ensure that five youth will receive a copy of the Youth Voice Nation Book. This book will help them to not only enhance their literacy rate as they read the words, but will help increase critical thinking as they learn to better read their world.


$100 Donation

$100 Donation will ensure that 10 youth will receive a copy of the Youth Voice Nation Book. This book will help them to not only enhance their literacy rate as they read the words, but will help increase critical thinking as they learn to better read their world.


$250 Donation

$250 Donation will ensure that 25 youth will receive a copy of the Youth Voice Nation Book. This book will help them to not only enhance their literacy rate as they read the words, but will help increase critical thinking as they learn to better read their world.


$500 Donation

$500 Donation will ensure a 1 hour workshop with a class of 25 students that will help them to find their position and power to become agents of change. This workshop will use elements such as dialogue, creative writing, and performing to engage youth in discussion about identity and the need for their contribution to the community. In addition, each youth will receive a copy of the Youth Voice Nation Book. This book will help them to not only enhance their literacy rate as they read the words, but will help increase critical thinking as they learn to better read their world.


$1000 Donation

$1,000 Donation will ensure that a struggling school will receive a one hour all school assembly. Including musical and movement performances, this assembly will encourage youth through inspirational stories to “be the change they want to see in the world”.


$1.500 Donation

$1,500 Donation will ensure a struggling school will receive a full all school assembly and one workshop. The workshop will also end with each of the 25 students receiving a copy of Youth Voice Nation.


$2.500 Donation

$2,500 Donation will ensure that a struggling School will receive a full all school assembly and three workshops. Connecting with 75 students, these workshops will get youth to build critical thinking and creative expression. Each of the 75 youth will receive a copy of the Youth Voice Nation Book.


$5.000 Donation

$5,000 Donation will ensure that youth workers or teachers in a struggling school or organization receive a full 16 hr professional development that will certify them as Fulfill the Dream facilitators. Ten facilitators will receive both the training and curriculum to begin this transformational work with youth in their own classes or programs. Youth will then be given the chance to contribute to the next iteration of Youth Voice Nation. This program has been proven to enhance social and emotional skills as well as increase student achievement. You can also put in a request on where this training would take place, otherwise we will work with a school or organization that we know will provide good administrative support to the facilitators.


$7.500 Donation

$7,500 Donation includes the Fulfill The Dream certification training for ten facilitators, as well as the all school assemblies to kick off the program. This has proven to be the most effective in changing the atmosphere of the schools as youth see positive adults who speak their language supporting their teachers in igniting the voices of youth in the schools.


$10.000 Donation

$10,000 Donation includes full certification training in Fulfill The Dream, as well as all school assemblies to kick off the program. This is further supplemented with after school programs with adult artists that engage youth with what they have been learning in class and support them in beginning to apply it creatively to their lives through the arts. Youth will then have the support they need to do a full performance at the culmination of the project. This has proven to have the longest impact in young people’s lives as they are able to connect with teachers during the day more effectively in school, with artists after school, and with parents and community during their performance. Again each teacher works with about 25 students so this would impact 250 students lives forever!
