about the Dream A Dream (D.A.D.) Foundation

Don D. Wilson - Dream A Dream Foundation

The Dream A Dream (D.A.D.) Foundation is a Chicago-based, non-profit organization that was created to support, uplift and actualize the dreams of young people who may not have the resources to achieve their goals.

Named after and in honor of the late Don D. Wilson, who believed that nothing is impossible if you set your mind to it and put in the work.

A lifelong learner whose interest spanned the spectrum – from microbiology to world history to travel – Don designed a life from which he didn't need a vacation.


It is in this vein, D.A.D. is committed to giving back to underserved communities across the country.
