INVEST IN GIRLDREAMER
So many of you ask us how you can support the work we’re doing, whether you’re a GirlDreamer or not.
We’ve now created a way to make that possible!
Thank you for considering GirlDreamer as the organisation you’d like to support!
Our work is nuanced, specific and is constantly adapting to the cultural and societal shifts that take place in our world. With your support, we can go beyond what traditional business and funding allows us to do. We can really dream big and invest so much more into our community of GirlDreamers. We can create, respond and deliver in moments of need and open up new possibilities and opportunities for them to thrive.
If you’d like to support us in furthering our mission of supporting women of colour to do, be and achieve more and turning their dreams of social change into reality, please consider supporting our efforts below.
Thank you in advance for your kind support and generosity, we wish you all the goodness!
WHAT WILL I BE SUPPORTING?
Transparency is really important to us here at GirlDreamer and so we want to break down exactly how you’ll be supporting our efforts.
COVID-19 RESPONSE FUND
This year we found out that “9/10 mirco-small BAME-led orgs were at risk of closure within 3 months due to COVID-19”. We immediately wanted to do something to help, so we were granted £10,000 (from The Queen’s Commonwealth Trust) to allocate to other women of colour-led micro groups/organisations to support those who have faced significant hardships due to C-19. These small emergency funds were aimed at getting these specific groups through the immediate challenges they were faced with to keep them afloat and prevent their important doors from closing. Although we successfully distributed 20 grants, we were unable to support 90% of those who applied as we received more applications than anticipated and could possibly support. With your help, we can continue to support underrepresented groups and their vital work through this current pandemic.
THE DREAM FUND
A new type of funding where we directly support other young women of colour-led groups who are starting their social change journey. This fund will provide up to £500 start-up grants to bring our communities visions for change to life. We will match this fund through in-kind support with business planning, marketing and financial management to ensure our GirlDreamer’s ventures are sustainable. Each time we hit a £500 donation target for The Dream Fund, we will share the opportunity for a GirlDreamer to pitch her/their work and apply for this start-up grant.
KEEPING THE DREAM ALIVE
All of our work is kept free for our community. Statistically and in our own experience, cost presents a huge barrier in accessing learning and support which then has knock-on effects towards development. We want to remove that barrier. It’s why we reinvest our finances to cover the costs it takes to create and deliver our work so for GirlDreamers, it’s totally accessible. Donations help to cover these incurred costs so our community can continue to learn, grow and dream freely.
Thank you deeply for your support and
belief in us!
