Dream Factory chapters are run completely with volunteer help. There is not one paid employee at the chapter level.  Our National Headquarters, in Louisville, KY, has the equivalent of just four paid employees.  Because of this, you are assured that those who are helping fulfill a child’s dream are there because they choose to be, not because they are getting paid to do so.

If you would like additional information regarding volunteering, contact us at [email protected]  or 585-234-0740.

Note: Volunteering for a position that works directly with children, requires a clean background check.

Various Volunteer Committees include:

  • Fundraising
  • Special Events
  • Public Relations
  • Information Technology
  • Community Relations
  • Corporate Sponsorship
  • Dream Screening & Selection
