Book of Dreams Wish List
Welcome to the 2021 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. While our parents make significant sacrifices to pay tuition, their contributions do not cover all costs, and each school has needs. You may also sponsor a student with tuition assistance. 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.
