'I Have a Dream' Foundation of Boulder County

Founded in 1990, the "I Have A Dream" Foundation of Boulder County is dedicated to motivating and empowering low-income children (Dreamers) to achieve their educational and career goals, subsequently helping to reduce high school dropout rates and halt the cycle of poverty. To serve as inspiration to forge ahead, each Dreamer is promised a last-dollar, tuition assistance scholarship upon high school graduation. The organization follows the national "I Have A Dream" model, which began in 1981 under the direction of philanthropist Eugene Lang and has included more than 200 sites across the country, with Boulder County's program remaining one of the largest.
