DACA Trust Fund

You can make dreams come true!  Help us protect thousands of young immigrants who depend on Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) to live and work freely in this country. As this pandemic looms above us, many of our DACAmented individuals have been hit hard by the loss of family members and income. Your donation will help DACAmented folks be able to obtain resources that can help move them ahead. 

After many challenges, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program is back to its original state from 2012. The Dream and Promise Act of 2021 will ensure that DACA beneficiaries become legal permanent residents and eventually citizens of this country.  While it passed the House of Representatives this past week, it is still not the law of the land. DACA remains the only protection that these young people have.  The inability to pay the government fee of $495 can not be the barrier to their only available protection.

Help a DACA recipient by making a donation in support of their application fees!

With the impact of Covid on work and finances, it is difficult for DACA recipients to cover their application fees. Your gift today will help cover a portion or the full $495 the U.S. Department of Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) charges to keep these young people from facing deportation.

Make a real difference with a donation, big or small.  Thank you for stepping in for immigrant youth!
