Dream Foundation: A Noozhawk Special Project

Complete index of articles and resources on a series sponsored by the Hutton Parker Foundation

This is the index page for Noozhawk’s special spotlight project on the Santa Barbara-based Dream Foundation, the largest national organization for helping grant wishes of those adults who are fighting terminal illnesses.

The Dream Foundation was founded locally in 1993 and continues to expand as a national network. In 2011, the nonprofit organization fulfilled the dreams of more than 20,000 struggling individuals and their families. Dreams delivered included being sent on a family Disneyland trip and meeting star celebrities and athletes, to having a simple utility bill taken care of.

In an innovative partnership, Noozhawk and the Hutton Parker Foundation have created a package of media grants to showcase four Santa Barbara County nonprofit organizations through a story-telling, branding, marketing and social-media campaign. Noozhawk writers will be reporting on these special series while providing critical insight into the world of nonprofit organizations and highlighting exceptional achievements in an effort to improve community discussion and awareness.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
