Our Impact

Reno-Tahoe is a better place when we come together to make dreams come true for community members in need. This belief guides us in everything we do through Dreams Foundation, Inc. It fuels our passion to partner with community organizations. It drives us to exceed the expectations of every dreamer. Most importantly, it is the foundation of our mission to fulfill the unmet dreams and aspirations for individuals, families, and organizations who are struggling financially and emotionally.


Our Goals

Dreams are more than just a wish. They have the power to change a life. When we help somebody in need, whether it’s through financial aid or supporting them through a difficult time in their lives, it can give them the strength to move forward. Our goal is to help our community thrive by making a difference for those who need it the most. Through our community partnerships, we aim to be a hub who our neighbors can turn to when they need help.

Our Story

Dreams Foundation, Inc. began when a close friend lost her son. She could not afford to fly his body back home, and she was desperate to get her son back to be with his family. As a mother who had lost a son, Terry knew the pain her friend was experiencing and along with her daughter, Sarah, began raising money to help their family. This led Terry and Sarah to question, “Where do people go when they need help?” And thus, Dreams Foundation, Inc. was born.
