Dreams for you was founded in 2005 with the single purpose of fulfilling dreams for children ages 3-21 who have been diagnosed with a life-threatening illness. Dreams are referred to us by doctors, nurses, Child Life and Social Workers, friends, families, and other patients.
Dreams vary as much as the personalities of the children we serve. They may involve meeting a celebrity, a trip, a gift such as a computer or playground, or our most-requested dream, a week at the Give Kids the World Village, which enables a child to visit any major theme parks. No dream has been refused, except those involving motorized vehicles and firearms.
Dreams for you is not affiliated with a national organization. Since its inception in 2005, Dreams for you has made dreams come true for over 3,000 children.
According to our most recent audited financial report, 90% of all expenses go to make children’s dreams come true. Over 75% of all dream costs are covered by in-kind donations.
All funds raised help children in our community. Dreams for you strictly adheres to the Association of Fundraising Professional’s Donor Bill of Rights.
Every child deserves hope and a dream, and our goal is to continue to make those dreams come true.
