Mission Statement

We are a wish granting organization that grants dreams to critically and chronically ill children from the ages of 3-18. The Dream Factory is the only children’s wish-granting organization that does not limit its mission to children who have life-threatening illness. The organization believes children with chronic illnesses and disorders also suffer from substantial emotional and physical pain. We strive to provide hope and relief from the trauma and corresponding stress and depression that both the children and their families can endure on a day-to-day basis. Doctors agree that providing a dream can improve the quality of life for these children and extend the life of a critically ill child.


Since 1985, the Dream Factory of Portland has remained dedicated to making dreams come true for critically or chronically ill children. As a 100 percent volunteer organization, granting dreams is our mission, smiling children is our vision. And in more than two decades, our devoted volunteers and generous business supporters have created thousands of smiles. We are proud to say that more than 90 percent of the funds raised or donated to the Portland chapter of the Dream Factory remain right here, granting the dreams of deserving children in our community. From ocean cruises to new computers to Disney character meetings and shopping sprees--the Dream Factory continues to proudly grant dreams of all shapes and sizes to the children in Oregon. For children and their families who live each day not knowing what the future may bring, a dream granted brings a little ray of light, a little bit of hope and a lifetime of memories.
