Sorry, this fundraiser is closed and no longer accepting contributions.

Launch A College Career

Your generosity ensures that our Dreamers will start on a level playing field, bolstered by the support provided by their IHADLA family. The items listed below cover most of the basic essentials that our Dreamers would not be able to afford by themselves, as our kids are all from extremely impoverished communities and have little money to spare for college expenses. 

We are so proud of our graduating seniors and want to ease their stress as they embark upon their college dream. That is why we are asking for your support through our College Supplies Drive.

If you would prefer sending new, unopened, donated materials directly to our IHADLA office, please send these supplies to the following address:
IHADLA
634 S Spring Street, Suite 812
Los Angeles, CA 90014

If you would like to support our College Supply Drive, or the foundation overall, via check, stock transfer, or an additional credit card charge, please mail your check to the above address or call our office at (213)572-0175 and ask for Kristen, our Development Manager.

You may also learn more about the “I Have a Dream” Foundation – Los Angeles or make a donation on our website: www.ihadla.org .

*All item prices (including tax) are based on products that can be bought at Target or Staples.
**Numbers of items needed will vary, as some of our Dreamers will be staying in dorms and will need both dorm supplies and academic supplies, whereas others will only need academic supplies.
