Support Dream Foundation’s Dreams for Veterans program

Help give life to the final Dreams of terminally-ill veterans and their families across the nation. Make a gift today or join our Dream Heroes for Veterans monthly giving club.


Dream Foundation gives life to the final Dreams of terminally-ill adults and their families across the nation. Over the past 27 years, we have given life to over 32,000 Dreams and served well over 1,459 Dreams for veterans.

Your gift will help fulfill final Dreams for terminally-ill veterans who served from World War II to the Iraq and Afghanistan Wars and every conflict in between; those who served during peacetime or who currently serve on active duty in the Reserve or National Guard.

Over the next five years, 2.6 million veterans will need end-of-life care. Our Dreams for Veterans program provides veterans and their loved ones with inspiration, comfort and closure when it’s most needed.

Make a bigger impact

Every gift counts.


Make a one-time gift and our generous Veteran Campaign Partners will triple it or they’ll add a $100 bonus if you sign up to the monthly giving club, all up to a total of $50,000.

Joining the Dream Heroes for Veterans monthly giving club is the best way to make veterans’ Dreams come true. You’ll receive regular updates on the veterans you have helped and the Dreams you make possible.

Veterans like Howard need you


“I need to make amends for abandoning them…the loss of their father left them with a lot of questions…I myself was not able to give them the answers at the time due to my mental state.”

Please help veterans like Howard, a U.S. Army veteran who earned a Purple Heart serving in the Vietnam war. Left with severe PTSD following his experiences in Vietnam, Howard requested help in reuniting with the daughters he hadn’t seen for 32 years.

If you served, you can dream


Dream recipients are U.S. military veterans, those currently on active duty, in the reserve or National Guard diagnosed with a life-limiting illness and a life expectancy of 12 months or less. Please visit the Dreams for Veterans application page to learn more.
