Campaign Begins! Please help me make my Dream a reality!!

Dear Friends, Supporters and Advocates,

Hopefully as we all know, I have been given the amazing opportunity to fulfill my dream of pursuing a Master’s of Arts in Education degree at Harvard University.

Having visited the campus, engaged with my future professors, and acquainted myself with campus life, I am very excited to begin my studies. I have been applying to scholarships and fellowships but have found myself mostly excluded due to my legal status. For the same reason, I am also unable to access student loans.

In understanding these obstacles, two community organizations, Friends of Harvard and The Victoria Foundation, have partnered together to launch a campaign intended to raise funds and awareness from the community to support my journey to Harvard.

As a member of my familia, I humbly ask that you join this campaign by contributing your time, network and financial resources in the following ways:

A) Contribute online by clicking on “DONATE NOW” explicitly specifying that the funds are intended for “The Victoria Foundation / Friends of Harvard”


B) Contribute via check to the following address:

The Victoria Foundation
1112 E. Buckeye Rd., Suite B-5
Phoenix, AZ 85034-4043

C) Forward this message to any and all people in your network who may also be interested in joining this campaign


Thank you so much for being a part of my life and for helping me fulfill my dreams of attaining a Master’s of Arts in Education from Harvard. Together, we can stand in the face of these obstacles and say “Harvard…Sí se puede!”
