DFTM - Dreams Fulfilled Through Music
San Antonio, Texas
Dreams Fulfilled Through Music strives to develop the personal
accomplishment, social growth, and self-esteem of children &
adults with special needs through therapeutic music education &
performance opportunities. We plan to accomplish this by
providing financial grants for tuition, supplies, instruments to
eligble clients nationwide. In the future we also hope to have
transportation grants available to help offset the rising cost of
to transport clients to music therapists and teachers.
We are a relatively new organization, chartered in Feburary 2005
San Antonio, TX. This organization was founded by Kathryn
Archuleta and her mother Mary Kathryn Archuleta. This dream
began seven years ago when Kathryn completed her Girl Scout
Award project. (equivalent to attaining the honor of Eagle Scout as
a Boy Scout) In March of 1999 when Kathryn organized a benefit
concert entitled "Children With Disabilities Studing Music" or
CWDSM for short. CWDSM raised over $3800 in cash donations
through ticket sales and sales of advertising in the program book.
Kathryn, with the cooperation of several music publishers and
dealers was able to turn this $3800 in to a music library worth
$5000 which was given to clients as they needed it.
In May of 1999 Kathryn learned first hand what the needs of the
differently abled community were when she was severely injury by
a school backpack, leaving her in chronic pain, using a wheelchair
most of the time. Kathryn's dream was originally to continue
CWDSM every year after 1999 but with her injury, plans for
benfit had to be put on hold. Last year her health finally allowed
her to move forward with incorporation and applying for 501(c)3
tax status which is still pending. With God's Grace and the help
many volunteers Dreams Fulfilled Through Music can touch many
lives with the sweet sound of music.
