“There is nothing like a dream to create the future.” – Victor Hugo
Toby’s Dream Foundation ensures that children living with life-threatening illnesses in Greater Hampton Roads & the Eastern Shore of Virginia have the opportunity and resources to imagine and experience their most fantastic dream.
Toby’s Dream Foundation creates dream experiences for children facing an uncertain tomorrow, which allows them to continue believing in the possibility of a moment unencumbered and a life full of hope.
Not all children live the care-free lives they deserve and, as a result, their capacity to dream becomes hindered by the news of an uncertain tomorrow. For some, their days become consumed with treatment and therapy, doctor’s offices and hospitals. These children face challenges that many adults would cower from, and are able to do so with courage that inspires so many.
Make A Difference
Be a part of a Dream. Join us as we wake children from a restless sleep to give them the waking dream they will never forget. Toby’s Dream Foundation operates with an entirely volunteer staff and Board of Directors, relying on generosity from our community to achieve our own dream of giving the children of greater Hampton Roads, the Eastern Shore of Virginia, and eastern North Carolina the unforgettable experiences which bring hope for an uncertain future. We are only successful through support from our sponsors, donors and volunteers. Contributions of time, talent, goods and services, and financial donations are greatly appreciated.
Donations to Toby’s Dream Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization, are tax-deductible. Over 85 cents from every dollar donated goes directly to the children we support. Thank you for considering how your talents and resources can help fulfill children’s dreams in greater Hampton Roads and the Eastern Shore of Virginia.
Bringing Dreams to Life
A diverse team of volunteer Dream Makers help children with life-threatening illnesses realize their most fantastic Dream. The process begins with a referral and eligibility confirmation. Then, the child’s physician will be contacted in order to confirm eligibility. Next, the Dreamers are interviewed by our volunteer Dream Makers to discover the child’s Dream. Finally, Toby’s Dream Foundation designs and delivers the Dream to the delight of a child who so rightfully deserves the experience of a lifetime and a moment of complete elation.
