Founded in 2018, the Once A Dream Foundation (OADF) is a faith-based nonprofit organization that focuses on the importance of education, goal setting, and dream building. Our purpose is to equip children with the tools that they need to be successful in the future, while encouraging strong relationships with Christ. This is achieved by hosting community events, school drives, tutoring and mentorships, college scholarships, entrepreneurial, athletic, and arts programs. We are purposed to give students a platform that will allow them to explore and grow in their God given gifts, as well as apply those gifts for the benefits of others. Although we believe that every child deserves a chance, we specifically assist youth from underserved populations.
Yes, we are a federally recognized tax exempt 501(c)(3) organization.
Another great question! Besides self-funding, we rely on donations, sponsors, grants, and fundraisers. All of the income that we receive is recycled back into our foundation to support our purpose.
