Philanthropist Victoria Doramus has donated an undisclosed sum of money to Hopeland. This occurred during Hopeland’s Annual Gala, which was held in New York City in December 2018. Several well-known actors and actresses joined with Doramus in raising awareness for Hopeland. These included performances by Ari Afsar (who is known for her role as Elizabeth Schuyler Hamilton, wife of Alexander Hamilton, in the Chicago performances of the musical Hamilton) and Keala Settle [who was made famous by her role in The Greatest Showman, Lettie Lutz (who sings the hit song “This is Me”)]. Settle was introduced by another famous actor, Hugh Jackman. Visit This Page for more information.
Victoria Doramus is a London based philanthropist who specializes in Nonprofit Organization Management. She graduated from the University of Colorado with a Bachelor of Arts in 2006 and became a creative consultant for several companies between 2006 and 2013. From 2014-2016, she became the personal assistant to Film Director & Producer, Peter Berg. Victoria Doremus mainly worked in New York City during this time, managing property and forming relationships with independent contractors in the Greater New York City area.
Since 2016, Doramus has been involved with several charities and non-profit groups, including the Amy Winehouse Foundation (prevents young people from misusing alcohol and drugs), Room to Read (helping underprivileged children around the world get an education), Best Friends Animal Society (saving dogs and cats from being killed in shelters), and the Women’s Prison Association (helping women recover from being incarcerated). Her most recent contribution, as previously stated, was to Hopeland.
Hopeland is a non-profit institution, based out of New York City, founded in 2014 by Deborra-lee Furness and Nicholas Evans. Their goal is to help children, both in the United State and around the world, stay with ‘safe, loving families.’ The Hopeland Annual Gala was announced to raise funds for their daily operations. According to Evans’ speech during the gala, “Just because you didn’t cause the problem, doesn’t mean you can’t be part of the solution.” Evans has high hopes for Hopeland in the coming years, thanks to support from Victoria Doramus and other donors.
