Reach for a Dream

For 33 years, Reach for a Dream has fulfilled the dreams of children fighting life-threatening illnesses.

Who They Are

Reach For A Dream seeks to alleviate the strain that life-threatening illnesses place on sick children and their families by providing these dreamers with the opportunity to believe in their greatest wish. The Foundation has been providing dreams to children all around the country for 33 years in counting. These young children are under extreme pressure to deal with these medical issues and are in desperate need of encouragement. In addition, Reach For A Dream offers the child a magical moment to regain their childhood that is being lost to an illness.

The vision is to grow the Foundation to enable us to continue giving hope to children fighting critical illnesses. The Foundation hosts several national projects throughout the year to engage with the brave dreamers and wonderful donors.



Help inspire hope in the hearts of our dream children today by making a donation.
