Dear Friend,

Gifting Dreamers Foundation, a 501(c)(3) charity, has been devoted to enhancing the quality of life for fatherless young men for the past 4 years. Our approach is to provide under-served fatherless males, age 12-18, a path to empowerment and educational excellence.

Responding to the call of “Empowering Young Men,” Gifting Dreamers has made significant strides in helping young men build a foundation of self-reflection, invoking leadership qualities, career training, and nurturing the intrinsic value of manhood. Stemming from the success of our 2017 Summer Mentoring Camp, Gifting Dreamers will host 100 fatherless young men with a Fun Educational and Empowering night.

The Gifting Dreamers M.E.N. (Mentors Empowering Our Neighborhood) New Year’s Eve All- Nighter is one of our signature events. This all-nighter provides a safe and fun environment where young men can acquire the tools to conquer their goals in 2018. They will engage in peer-to-peer mentoring, discussions on many topics covering drug prevention, the principles of manhood, career choices and activities such as basketball, video games, and movies. The young men will not only be safe during the night they will also be productive, in a positive drug-free environment.

This year, the New Year’s Eve All-Nighter will be at the Joe Dumars Fieldhouse in Detroit. Starting at 9pm on New Year's Eve and ending at 7am on New Year’s Day.

Gifting Dreamers would like to offers this event for free since we recognize many do not have the ability to pay the cost to attend. Because of this Gifting Dreamers relies heavily on your sponsorship, contributions, and donations to ensure inclusion for all who are in need of participating in this life changing evening.

Gifting Dreamers requests your support with a suggested financial donation of $100 to sponsor Gifted Young Men to attend this all-nighter. For your convenience, your tax deductible donation can be made by clicking HERE

Your donation can impact a generation of young men! I hope you will join us and extend your good will to our future leaders!

Here's the Latest Public info from The Founder...

Hello I am Tegest A Kebede, I am a mother of two boys and founder of Gifting Dreamers Foundation. In 2014, I created Gifting Dreamers LLC a kids only platform to help kids ages 8 to 18 to raise money to chase and achieve their dreams via crowdfunding. In the process of meeting and working with tons of kids on how to achieve their dream, I realized that before WE can chase our DREAMS, we must grow as DREAMERS!

Inspired by the lack of opportunity and programs for youth in Metro Detroit, Tegest Kebede established Gifting Dreamers Foundation, a 501c3 non-profit. It is the mission of Gifting Dreamers Foundation to empower Metro Detroit youth to reach their full potential as positive, productive, responsible individuals and to DREAM their BEST LIFE. Gifting Dreamers Foundation has answered this call by offering three free life skills programs for kids in Metro Detroit:

  • Young Lady Dreamers Life Skills class
  • Young Men Dreamers Life Skills class
  • Dreamers Financial Fitness for Youth class

Each program offers DREAMERS the opportunity to learn new skills like self-defense training, etiquette and healthy living that will help them grow into young adults and be inspired to dream the impossible!
