How To Help

It’s not the size of the gift that matters, but how it contributes to a dream. Every dollar given, resource donated, minute volunteered and story shared adds largely to our overall efforts to enhance the quality of life for individuals and their families facing the challenges of terminal illness. Dream Foundation is proud to maintain a 4-star rating (the highest rating) by Charity Navigator for sound fiscal management, so you know your investment in dreams is always put to good use. If you dream of making a difference, here are some ways you can give back, provide employee opportunities or make a meaningful social impact:

Make a Financial Contribution 

When time has been cut short due to terminal illness, a final dream allows people the chance to create meaningful experiences, erase a worry, feel a moment of joy or experience a sense of closure in their final days. Every contribution – in any amount – is a tremendous gift to our dream-granting mission. Make your contribution today!

Donate Airline Miles

Give dreams the gift of flight. Our established airline partnerships allow you to contribute airline miles directly to the needs of our dream families. Whether it’s a bedside reunion, a vacation with children, or a trip to the ocean, your donated miles will make dreams come true.

In-Kind Contributions

In-kind contributions come in the form of donated products or services and are critical to the mission of Dream Foundation. Whether it’s travel resources that allow families to connect and create happy memories, or basic needs items that provide simple comfort in end-of-life care, these are the gifts that make dreams come true.


Dream Foundation has hundreds of volunteers serving our mission; enhancing our program efficiency and instilling the spirit of giving in the schools, neighborhoods, and communities in which they serve. Become a volunteer today, and experience the gift that is discovered in giving back.
