An Achievable Dream is joining forces with other local non-profits to participate in Give Local 757, a 24-hour Hampton Roads fundraising event where “everyone can be a philanthropist.” The event will be held in conjunction with the 2nd Annual Give Local America Day a nationwide effort to “empower every person to give back to their local communities by supporting the organizations they trust to tackle today’s most critical issues.”

Please give An Achievable Dream your support by donating online anytime from May 9 at noon through May 10 at 11:59 pm. The minimum donation is just $10. Without An Achievable Dream, many of our students would not have the opportunities they need to succeed in school and in life. The focus at all grade levels is that college and successful careers are achievable for everyone. Every gift counts and your contribution is greatly appreciated.  Your support is vital to keeping our students’ dreams achievable.

“While I was growing up, I heard that the odds were against me. Society had already forecast my future. Utilizing the resources and character-building lessons from An Achievable Dream, I chose not to believe anything that would go against my goals and dreams.” – Shukita Massey, Class of 2001, The Frank and Marie Blechman Scholars; Assistant Commonwealth’s Attorney, Hampton and Adjunct Professor at Hampton University.
