Dreams Foundation, Inc.
2017 Giving & Support Membership Levels & Recognition
Don’t just Dream Big…“Dream a Bigger Dream!”
OUR “DYNAMIC” MISSION
Fulfill the “unmet dreams” of Dreamers with a Vision – such that the DREAMS ONCE MET, will benefit others in their families, faith-based organizations, populations unbound by age with special needs, non-profit organizations serving local communities, and individuals to whom DFI awards one-time Humanitarian Awards to acknowledge their immediate need, while recognizing they’ve stood-in-the-gap for others when they were able!
Dreaming and being a Donor have far more than their D’s&r’s in common, but to Dr. John Yacenda, DFI’s President & CEO, the Dr means only one thing: Don’t Run away from the opportunity to join the Giving and Support Membership Team!
And yes, our good Dr. John will take this a step further and assure you that he can find a Giving and Support Membership Team to fit virtually ANY GIVING LEVEL YOU WISH TO EXPRESS…even those when you get so excited about winning a Friday night Bingo that you want to make a one-time extra gift that complements your regular Giving Level!
ALL DONOR CATEGORIES are noted in any Newsletters or Community Engagement publications DFI issues during the year, and every dollar is important, especially when we have a number of our institutional Giving and Support Members who will on occasion offer to double or triple match donations made to fund certain programs and activities of passionate interest to them.
We have identified SIX GIVING & SUPPORT MEMBERSHIP TEAMS whose “team membership” is assigned in accordance with one’s total of annual giving. What follows below are descriptions of the different ranges of annual Giving & Support assigned to each category, followed by notations on the variety of ways DFI intends to publicly recognize Members’ contributions to our funded programs and services.
CONTRIBUTOR — Under $1,000
All Donors to DFI are recognized for any size donation, but we want to encourage everyone who wants to help out from time to time to know that once they’ve given to DFI by name & address, there’s a Contributor’s Account with their name on it created in our accounting system. So, when you win that jackpot or get an extra few dollars you know there’s an account ready to put it to good use!
