Northeast Dreamin’ is proud to partner with a New England nonprofit working to better the lives of people in its local area. Our partners come from a different New England state every year.
The selected organization is highlighted on the Northeast Dreamin’ website and in Northeast Dreamin’ promotions to raise awareness of our partner’s work leading up to as well as at the event. Northeast Dreamin’ also makes an unrestricted donation to support our partner’s mission, thus funds may be used at the discretion of the organization chosen and are not limited to program or operating budgets.
Depending on funds, one or two nonprofits is selected each year. One of the nonprofits will have a STEM-focused mission.
