What is a dream warrior and how do I know if I am one?
Dream Warriors is an intersectional, inclusionary feminist Facebook group at its roots. The concrete things we do – our projects, passions and lives – vary widely. Our common thread is a nuanced intangible brightness and instinct to connect with and better the world around us. We can all agree that recognizing a kindred Dreamie is wholly instinctual: we know them when we see them.
What is a dream warrior-OWned business?
A Dream Warrior-owned business is at least 50% woman/non-binary/femme-identifying owned, and believes and upholds DW principles. Additionally, Dream Warrior-owned businesses are safe, welcoming spaces for all populations including trans and gender-nonconforming folks, people of color, and other marginalized individuals.
How do I add my business or organization and how much does it cost?
You can add your business or organization here. Listing your business or organization is FREE. Choosing to offer a discount or promotion to your business on our directory is FREE and is an extra perk for our members to support you!
How is the foundation different than the facebook group?
The Facebook group was just the start, like a digital clubhouse to exchange resources and ideas. The Foundation is the evolution of the community -- a place for us to meet IRL and fund each other for real. A membership gets you access to discounts on the Dream Warriors Foundation directory, updates/invites to events and happenings, and the proceeds from the membership go into grants to fund the dreams of our community.
What if I'm not on Facebook?
No sweat -- you can still buy a membership. We want you to join and support our community, contribute towards grants, and attend our educational events!
How do I know if I'm eligible for a grant?
Apply apply apply! We have a committee who chooses recipients for our quarterly Spark grants and our annual Big Idea grant. Visit our Grants page to learn more.
What are you looking for for grantees?
Like a Dream Warrior themselves, the ideal applicant(s) will have a project or passion that will better and empower our community. Visit our Grants page to learn more. When in doubt - apply, apply, apply!
Do i have to be in the online social group to apply for a grant?
No, you do not need to be in the online social group, Dream Warriors, to apply. However, preference will be given to those that support our mission and align with DW principles. Visit our Grants page to learn more about qualifications.
What if I'm not a dream warrior, but I still want to support?
We would love your support. Purchase a membership for yourself and encourage your friends, family, and colleagues to join! Your membership gains you access to discounts on our directory of Dream Warrior-owned businesses, helps fund grants, and endless good karma. Join Us.
How can I get involved?
WHAT if I still have questions?
We definitely didn't think of everything! Contact us to let us know what other questions you might have.
