Mission Statement

"We grant dreams to critically and chronically ill children from the ages of three through eighteen."

Description

In 1980, The Dream Factory began with one all-volunteer chapter in Hopkinsville, Kentucky. Since then, The Dream Factory has grown into the largest all-volunteer children’s wish-granting organization in the United States, all while maintaining a grassroots approach. The Dream Factory continues to operate all 34 of its local chapters with very dedicated volunteers. These hard-working individuals raise funds within their own communities and then use those funds to grant the dreams of local children. Because we do not employ people on a local level, 90-percent of all money raised by The Dream Factory is used to grant the dreams of critically and chronically ill children. This record of success has been recognized by Charity Navigator as a four-star charity, it’s highest rating. Charity Navigator is the largest and most utilized evaluator of charities.

The Dream Factory is the largest 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.

Our Local Chapter here in Cedar Rapids was Founded March 2015.
