Those of us on the Board of Nicolás Fund for Education want to express our deep gratitude to all who attended our two Fulfilling a Dream events this month! The combined events raised over $132,500 to support scholarships for junior and senior high students in the Ixil!

FIRST SOUTH SOUND FULFILLING A DREAM EVENT
We were especially thrilled with the strong turnout of 49 people for our very first South Sound Fulfilling a Dream event in Gig Harbor, WA. That event alone generated 25 new NFE supporters and raised $4750 for education in Villa Hortencia 1!
THERE’S MORE WORK TO BE DONE
Even with this strong support, our dessert fundraiser typically generates about half of the NFE budget for the academic year, so we still have plenty of work to do to raise sufficient funds to be able to provide a high quality, full-day secondary school education for youth in the Ixil. Help make our job easier by doubling your donation!
