our background


Who is Once A Dream?

 Once A Dream is a foundation that focuses on the importance of education, goal setting, and dream building. Our objective is to equip children with the tools that they need to be successful in the future. We do this by hosting community events, school drives, tutoring, mentorships, scholarships, and arts programs; at little to no cost to parents or guardians. We are purposed to give students a platform that will allow them to explore and grow in their God given gifts, as well as apply those gifts for the benefits of others. Although we believe that every child deserves a chance, we specifically target minorities, underprivileged children, and economically challenged families. 

Is Once A Dream a 501(c)(3) organization?

This is a great question, but the short answer is no. We are actually a LLC.

How is Once A Dream Funded?

Another great question! Besides self-funding, we rely on donations, sponsors, and fundraisers. All of the income that we receive is recycled back into our foundation to support our purpose.

Since Once A Dream acts as a non-profit, then why not file to become a 501(c)(3) organization?

You're full of great questions! Please, keep them coming. Our focus is to become a foundation recognized by the IRS, so that we can do more. We are taking the steps to make that dream come true. Currently, we are ran by two individuals who both share the same passion, desire and dedication to carry out the Once A Dream mission. With your help we can get there!
