About Us // Mission Statement

Catch the Dream Foundation is a Section 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization with two missions:  to support individuals with a special talent or skill whose circumstances have prevented them from reaching their true potential, and to recognize and support the extraordinary efforts of a special category of volunteers.

Reaching Full Potential

Every great achievement begins with an idea, a skill, and an opportunity, but the chance to achieve can be very different for the disadvantaged.  Economic, social, and cultural factors can have a negative effect and prevent even those with an exceptional talent or skill from reaching their true potential, and making the most meaningful contribution.  While the loss to the individual is great, the loss to society can be even greater.

People Helping People

Our second mission recognizes and supports a special category of volunteers – those who organize a volunteer effort, whether to help with a problem or need in the community or another part of the world.  They do more than just volunteer their time – they help create solutions.  A single person’s desire to make a difference can change the lives of many and take many forms, whether providing food and medical care to the most vulnerable, helping the homeless regain their place in society, or assisting those devastated and displaced by natural disasters.  What they do may seem ordinary, but the impact can be extraordinary.
