“Dreams are the touchstone of our character.”

Henry David Thoreau

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 a 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 finances 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 our community.


Individuals or organizations can sponsor a fundraising event or a child’s dream. We have many opportunities for sponsorship at multiple levels – from golf tournaments to 5K races, or a creative event of your choice. You’ll know that you’ve made a difference in the lives of children in your community and will receive recognition through visibility at the event, on marketing materials and social media.


By donating to Toby’s Dream Foundation, you help us ensure that innocent children, though afflicted by life-threatening illnesses, will never lose their capacity to dream, their ability to make leaps of imagination, or their sense of excitement of possibility. Every gift, large or small, has an impact on making a child’s dream come true.

Remembrance and memorial gifts pay tribute to a loved one while helping children in our community.
