Dear Match Donor,
Women of the Dream (WOD) has been fortunate to receive a donation in the amount of $10,000 from a Simmons University alum who wishes to remain anonymous. Simmons University (previously Simmons College) is a small, prestigious, women’s college located in Boston, Massachusetts.
Every donation to WOD between now and July 1 will be matched up to a total of $10,000. By helping us meet the challenge, your contribution will support a graduating senior with college expenses or a girl who is currently on their college journey and needs help with the financial burden.
This is a proud moment for WOD. This matching donation represents confidence in the work we are doing in underserved communities. To date, we have served over 300 girls through mentoring, leadership opportunities, and exposure to successful women of color, including a recent trip to Boston where 8 girls accompanied me to the 2018 Black Symposium at Simmons University.
Over the past two years, WOD has awarded scholarships totaling $22,500 to eight girls from Camden, NJ. Through ongoing mentoring and financial support, our past scholarship participants are excelling in schools such as Cornell University, Caldwell College, Fairleigh Dickinson University, Simmons University, Snow College in Snow, Utah, Ursinus College, and Rutgers University.
Help us maximize the opportunity of this matching grant and continue our efforts to not only send more girls to college, but also help them adjust, thrive and graduate from college.
All donations are tax-deductible. Use the online form on this page to make an Online Donation through Paypal or an Offline Donation by check. When you choose Offline Donation, instructions will appear for mailing the check.
Thank you fellow dreamers for your donation!
