DreamActivist LLC is fully run and funded by undocumented students and supporters, on a volunteer basis since 2007. We are a non-tax exempt LLC, working to generate support for immigrant rights and organize our communities. We also sell some gear in our shop to help keep the site running.
For larger, tax deductible donations, our supporters can donate to our sister organization, the National Immigrant Youth Alliance, through its fiscal sponsor, Alliance for Global Justice. If you send us or AGJ a check, make sure to clearly label what project you want your contribution to go towards.
You can donate here or via paypal at email@example.com
Each $ goes a long way in supporting our cause. A recurring donation of $5 a month from each supporter can make a world of difference.
Your donations have helped us pay for advocacy efforts and lobbying immigrant rights and immigrant justice.

“When we are dreaming alone it is only a dream. When we are dreaming with others, it is the beginning of reality. This is what DreamACTIvist has done , to allow us to dream and act together! through DreamActivist’s efforts, she has given voice to the voiceless, courage to those who are afraid to speak up for themselves and kept the fire of hope burning to the undocumented students who have been dreaming for years and years as to the day they could be free to pursue their dreams, realize their full potential and be recognized for what they are truly worth. – Nini Baesa
This amazing group works harder (and smarter) to do more good for more kids than any group I’ve ever encountered. – Phillipa
DreamActivist has not only been beneficial as a networking tool for this national student movement, but also for the organizing itself. The UCLA Alliance of DREAMs is extremely thankful for your contributions! – Emilio Lacques
This web-site is creating a buzz among one of the most difficult segments of the population – the young Hispanic population. 60-65K people a year could be helped, if the DREAM act passed. These people helped will be the leaders of our country tomorrow – Virgilio Perez Pascoe
DreamActivist.org deserves the grant for their amazing work in online organizing! They bring the personal stories, news updates, and petition signing all together to reach out to people from all backgrounds and experiences, creating a full-blown MOVEMENT!!! -Lucy
I found DREAMActivist.org to be an amazing resource for our DREAM students. Aside from our documentary accessing resources from DREAMActivist.org we have learned so much from their organizing efforts and have connected with students across the country. We at An Unfinished DREAM love the DREAMActivist.org site because of their dedication to social justice – Margarita Reyes
It is because of the rising power of DreamActivist that we were able to finally penetrate a major national network to speak out on the immigration debate from the undocumented student perspective. You can see this here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GX8wg0k3kdE. Your support will strengthen the effort to turn the debate around and make it about the humane aspect of immigration policy. Thanks. – Matias
DreamActivist.org is not only a place that provides the general public with very valuable information. It is not only a website that is utilized to both educate and mobilize youth, allies, parents, educators, entire families who seek a better life in this country, it also represents HOPE. Many have expressed how before they became aware of DreamActivist.org they had no hope to continue with their education, to continue fighting for what is right and what is valuable. Dream Activist represent the hope that there is in fact a light at the end of the tunnel. Many have been inspired to do on the ground organizing and for that and more DreamActivist.org deserves to be given these funds. – Lizbeth, DREAMs to be Heard
