Become a “Key Holder”

Every $1 invested in afterschool programs saves $3 in the future by increasing an individual student’s earning potential, improving performance at school, and reducing crime and welfare costs.

Monthly commitments can be at any level. The cost for one student to participate in our program is $125/mo. Research shows that for every 1 student involved in an afterschool program there are 2 waiting, let’s get that waiting list down, and together we might tip the scales and make some serious change in these kids’ lives!  

The Doors to Dream “KeyHolders” are integral in getting doors opened for our students. The exclusive set of original supporters committed to sponsoring students through monthly donation will become a part of our “KeyHolders” program. 

Your support will give our students their very own KEYS to unlocking doors to success. Your donation also provides you a Key into the Doors to Dream organization, inviting you to journey with us as we watch lives transformed.
