The Dream Factory is the only wish granting organization that grants dreams to children 3 through 18 who are either critically or chronically ill. We believe that children who suffer from chronic illness also endure trauma, stress, and daily challenges. We strive to provide hope and happiness for children with serious illness by making dreams come true.

In order to be eligible for a dream:

  • The child must be 3 to 18 years old
  • The critical or chronic illness must be documented and affirmed by a treating physician.
  • The child must be able to communicate his or her dream to a volunteer screening representative of The Dream Factory
  • The child may not have received a dream from any other dream fulfilling organization

The Dream Factory grants wishes without regard to race, color, creed, religion, ethic origin or economic status.


Dream referrals will only be considered for children who reside in communities where chapters exist. The Dream Factory regrets that our volunteers are not able to grant all requests, but must limit their efforts to their local children. Click here to contact your local chapter.
