Book of Dreams Wish List
Welcome to the 2017 Book of Dreams Wish List for our schools. Book of Dreams presents opportunities to enrich our schools with gifts that are beyond their limited budgets. Many items may seem like basic necessities but they are beyond the schools limited budgets. Items such as – transportation for field trips, playground equipment, art supplies, science lab materials, are all examples of our schools “wish lists.” You may also sponsor a student for a year, quarter, month, or a week. Enjoy reading this year’s Book of Dreams online and decide how you can help.
Click here to support the Book of Dreams online. You will be asked to designate the amount of your gift, select the school, and specify the wish list item(s) you want to fund.
You may also mail a check directly to Vision Hope or directly to the school you wish to support and indicate which items you are supporting on your check.
Koins for Kids
Every year students in the 22 elementary and high schools affiliated with the Dominican Sisters of Mission San Jose personally demonstrate the Dominican mission through Koins for Kids. Their efforts support Vision of Hope’s Annual Fund.
Since Koins for Kids began in 1998, quarters, dimes, nickels and pennies donated individually by students have totaled more than $669,000, averaging almost $35,000 a year!
Last year, students at St. Catherine Academy in Anaheim were the top givers at $3,000, followed closely by students at two Vision of Hope schools, St. Michael in Los Angeles at $2,934 and St. Elizabeth in Oakland at $2,500. It’s all about kids helping kids.
For every $10 raised at St. Anthony-Immaculate Conception in San Francisco, a class received a Koins for Kids Penguin for their classroom door.
