Dream Factory of Rochester

Proceeds for our event go to the Dream Factory.

The Dream Factory is the largest, all volunteer, national organization that fulfils dreams for children diagnosed with critical or chronic illnesses. The Dream Factory recognizes that children with chronic conditions face a lifetime of doctors, hospitals, restrictions, and medical uncertainty. Their goal is to create the moment of a lifetime for seriously ill children and their families.

Begun in Hopkinsville, Kentucky in 1980, The Dream Factory has 35 chapters throughout the U.S. In May 1999 The Dream Factory of Rochester began by fulfilling their first dream in our area when a young girl from Brockport requested a trip to Orlando, Florida. Twenty–five years later the local chapter has fulfilled 325 dreams and has 15 children waiting for their dreams to come true.

The Dream Factory of Rochester raises funds locally to fulfill dreams for local children. With no paid employees and very low overhead costs, The Dream Factory has been recognized for over 20 years by Charity Navigator (the largest and most utilized evaluator of charities) with four stars, the highest level of recognition achievable. The organization spends over 95% of funds donated on their mission of fulfilling dreams. With this in mind, The Dream Factory is focused on using your donated funds for their intended purpose- Making a child’s dream come true.
