Santa Barbara resident Daryl Stegall joins Board of Dream Foundation
Santa Barbara, Calif. –– Today, Dream Foundation, the only national dream-granting organization for terminally-ill adults, announced the appointment of Ms. Daryl Stegall to its National Board of Directors. As a member of the Board, Stegall will assist with overseeing Dream Foundation’s activities as well as assisting with fundraising to ensure that Dream Foundation has the ability to fulfill its mission of serving final Dreams to terminally-ill adults.
“Daryl’s passion for Dream Foundation, its mission, and its thousands of Dreamers has been unwavering,” said Kisa Heyer, Dream Foundation’s Chief Executive Officer. “Her dedication and experience make her a perfect addition to the esteemed Board and we are delighted to welcome her.”
Stegall has held several positions in the corporate sales and marketing arenas, including roles at Xerox Corporation and American Advertising.

“I am always humbled when I have the opportunity to meet a Dreamer or learn about a Dream,” says Ms. Stegall. “They are rarely elaborate requests. More often than not, they are fairly simple: a wheel chair ramp so they can enjoy the park during their last days, a comfortable mattress, an airplane ticket home to spend what little time they have left with loved ones, or gathering family together for a final reunion. This is just a small sampling of the Dreams that I have come to know and I am honored to help Dream Foundation continue to grant these very important end-of-life Dreams.”
Ms. Stegall has been an active supporter of Dream Foundation since 2005 and served as the organization’s Dreamland Gala Chair in 2016 and 2017.
