In 2009, a group of committed college students and education professionals sought to create change by hosting a gala event to fund and award scholarships for undocumented students. Many of these students are leaders in their communities but, unfortunately, cannot access the financial means to fund their post-secondary education. In order to meet this need, The Anhelo Project created the Dream Scholarship Fund for students residing in Illinois and attending any college or university within the state of Illinois. Since 2011, The Anhelo Project has proudly awarded 41 scholarships to students for a total of $92,000.
Today, we ask for your support in order to continue the mission of the Anhelo Project.
Our scholarship awardees are a very important asset to the economy and development of this country and for the past five years many of our beneficiaries have been Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients. In response to the Trump Administration announcement to rescind the DACA program within the next six months, The Anhelo Project has launched an Emergency Fund Initiative
for those DACA recipients in need of renewing their status before the October 5, 2017 deadline.
During these uncertain times, we stand with our students and their families to push forward for a resolution that will protect all immigrants through a permanent legislative solution.
Our goal is to match up to $6,000 in donations; donations can be as little as a dollar! For any contribution you can give us, more than 1,000 followers on our website and other social media outlets will hear about your generosity and donors, like you!
We greatly appreciate any financial support that you can give toward our fundraising efforts.
