Your Dream is Our Dream’s mission is to help kids reach their sports professional dreams, dance dreams, Olympic dreams, artistic dreams, and more, without worrying solely on costs.
This will keep kids busy, off the streets, and out of trouble.
YDIOD is a 100% nonprofit organization, we are a 501(c)3.
YDIOD will raise money to fund scholarships for Low to Medium income children to participate in sports, dance, the arts, music etc.
Parents apply for scholarships for their children and we will Interview the Family, the children to see what exactly their needs are and what does the child hope to get out of it all.
Children will already be enrolled in classes, or are signed up to begin classes through their own city clubs, schools, activities centers etc.
If approved, any funds that are paid out in scholarships will be directly paid to the sports club, dance club, activity center etc. If there is equipment or clothing to be purchased, then YDIOD will directly pay the sports store. No cash will actually ever enter into the hands of the families, so it can always easily be accounted for what the foundation is paying.
In exchange YDIOD will also ask families to donate 1-3 hours a month towards volunteering to another non-profit organization.
All the funds YDIOD raise or are given through donations will go to the scholarships and running of the non-profit i.e. 2-3 staff members, supplies, and location of office.
This corporation is organized exclusively for charitable purposes, including for such purposes, the making of distributions to organizations that qualify under section 501c3 of the Internal Revenue Code, or any corresponding section of any future federal tax code.
About Jenniffer Figueroa & Her Family
Jenniffer is a single mom to 6 amazing kids that are the center of her world. As with most kids, they all want to partake in some sort of extracurricular activity, which can be a very daunting and costly task for any parent and family to take on. One season her twins Reagan and Julian wanted to play soccer. It was quite a cost, and the soccer organization offered scholarships to parents that would volunteer to help sell concessions etc.
DING! DING! DING!
That is when “Your Dream is our Dream” was born!
Jenniffer thought about how great it would be to offer these types of scholarships to families whose kids played all kinds of sports, dance and music activities! But it had to be more than that! She wanted to show the families that while getting help with their dreams coming true, they will help other non profits by donating a few hours a month to a non-profit of their choice.
Originally started in May of 2016 in Tennessee, Your Dream is Our Dream is now located in Las Vegas, NV serving all of Clark County, NV.
