Dear Hospice Representative,

Dream Foundation is the only national dream-granting organization for terminally-ill adults with a life expectancy of one year or less. We believe fulfilling a final Dream provides inspiration, closure and comfort at the end of life. Our program provides psychosocial and inspirational support tailored to individuals and their families.

With the support of a nationwide network of volunteers, hospices, health care organizations and committed donors, Dream Foundation has fulfilled nearly 25,000 Dreams over the past two decades, and has never turned down a qualified request.

Thank You for Your Support,
Dream Foundation Staff
