Who We Are
The Dream Endowment is a children's charity currently serving the entire U.S.
Our mission is quite simply, to make dreams come true for disabled and seriously ill children across the country. We strive to bring happiness and joy to these children as well as their friends, family and caregivers.
We don’t do it alone. We rely on our strong relationships and alliances to extend our reach and we rely on you – our donors, volunteers, staff and friends.
What We Do
The Dream Endowment helps children with life-threatening and long-term illnesses and disabilities realize their unique dreams. We operate with complete integrity and dependability to ensure that each child has an unforgettable experience fulfilling their dreams resulting in wonderful memories to share with loved ones and friends.
Why We Do It
Our ‘dream children’ often have very little to look forward to apart from endless rounds of hospital visits, uncomfortable treatments and the prospect of living with a long term debilitating disease or disability. These very brave children can become very frustrated at times but we have found that they all dream of things they want to do and achieve.
We believe that fulfilling a dream provides a positive focus empowering both child and their families with renewed enthusiasm and strength to deal with ongoing daily struggles of illness or disability. It is a legacy of hope and well being that we strive for in our quest to make the world a better place for these beautiful and deserving children.
To bring joy and happiness to seriously ill and disabled children by helping make their dreams come true.
That every seriously ill or disabled child with a dream has the opportunity for that dream to come true. We believe that when you change a child’s life, you change a family’s, which can change a community, and ultimately the world. We strive to be part of that change and part of the solution in improving the lives of children and their families by providing opportunities that strengthen families during their most difficult or challenging times.
