PLUMAS DREAM FUND

PLUMAS (Political Latinxs United for Movement and Action in Society) is a campus activist organization at the University of Maryland at College Park. During the 2016 election, PLUMAS members came together to establish a fund in anticipation of upcoming challenges. Sure enough, within the first year of the current administration, DACA and other immigration programs came under attack. The PLUMAS Dream Fund was made available to UndocuTerps at UMD for DACA renewal fees, legal fees, tuition aid, and scholarships. In total, we have raised more than $9,000 and have helped more than fifteen students.

Each year, PLUMAS organizes a spring fundraising event, our annual Dream Gala, to raise money for the Dream Fund. Due to the COVID-19 crisis, we have been forced to cancel this year's Gala. The Gala has been tentatively rescheduled for the Fall 2020 semester, but we are unable to announce concrete plans at this time, due to the changing nature of the pandemic. As a result, this GoFundMe is our only fundraising stream for the Fall 2019-Spring 2020 academic year. All funds donated to this GoFundMe will go to UndocuTerp needs as they ask for it. In the past this has included status renewal fees, tuition aid, payment for legal support, and scholarships. As needs change with the upcoming DACA decision and the pandemic, so will our efforts change to accommodate them.

Although our fundraising efforts are limited this year, we still have money available through the PLUMAS Dream Fund for DACA renewal fees and other UndocuTerp needs. All funds are first-come, first-serve. You can seek funds here: https://go.umd.edu/requestdreamfund
