Dream Makers Initiative

In 2012, Thomas and Sandra Usher donated their 130-acre camp property for Summer’s Best Two Weeks to continue to fulfill the dream of teaching, training, and transforming urban America through operating Citikidz. With the gift of this state of the art facility comes the responsibility of stewardship as we partner with campers who pay $120 in tuition for their experience while our cost is significantly higher. We launched the Dream On campaign to raise $7.5 million and help meet the ever-growing financial need to support campers from locations and demographics who would not otherwise receive this opportunity. Since we started the campaign in 2012, we have raised over $3 million dollars, with the help of a generous family foundation that has agreed to match $1 for $1 gifts up to $175,000 each year until 2021. There is still more work to do to reach our overall goal and we need your help to sustain the momentum of the Dream On campaign. We need 2,000 monthly donors or what we call “Dream Makers.” Dream Makers will help us continue to reach urban youth, their leaders, and their communities. Would you consider joining us in one of the following categories? We need:

1000 Dream Makers @ $15 per month
500 Dream Makers @ $20 per month
300 Dream Makers @ $30 per month
150 Dream Makers @ $40 per month
50 Dream Makers @ $50 per month

If you would like to contribute a different amount than listed, you are more than welcomed. Together, we can continue the dream to leave a legacy and share a destiny when you join the movement. If you are not already a Dream Maker please join the dream team via monthly check, a secure monthly gift using Simple Donation by clicking here, text "DREAM ON" to 724-264-3100 and follow the prompts, or call 814-629-9744 to provide your credit card information to our business office.
