Through our Dream Granting Program, we endeavor to make dreams come true for terminally ill adults. In fulfilling the last dreams of our dream recipients and their families, we strive to improve the quality of their lives in ways that medicine alone cannot. Through this non-traditional, palliative form of healthcare, Dream Foundation provides those at the end of life’s journey with a sense of resolution, completion and peace. In 2014, we served our milestone 20,000th dream.

Dream Guidelines

Dream Foundation grants requests to adults age 18 and over whose life expectancy, confirmed by their physicians, is one year or less.
