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

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 32 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 when they ranked the Dream Factory as a four-star charity, Their highest rating. Charity Navigator is the largest and most utilized evaluator of charities.
