Dreams Come True for Children with Life-Threatening Illnesses in Jacksonville

Our Mission to Make Dreams Come True for Sick Children

What is Dreams Come True of Jacksonville?

Dreams Come True is the First Coast’s only locally-based, wish granting organization dedicated to using the power of a dream to bring hope and joy to EVERY First Coast child battling a life-threatening illness. Since 1984, we have fulfilled the dreams of more than 3,700 children. No child is ever denied a dream and no child is ever placed on a waiting list. We are proud to say that, unless otherwise designated, 100% of all donations go directly toward dream fulfillment.

Dream Day 2017

The TaxSlayer Bowl and Dreams Come True signed twelve dreamers to the TaxSlayer Bowl Dream Team on August 29th. The inaugural TaxSlayer Bowl Dream Team will provide a unique experience for twelve dreamers who are participants of Dreams Come True. We will introduce you to each dreamer during the 13 week program. Please check back for updates. If you would like to learn how you can help us underwrite the activities of the program, please call 904-296-3030. You can follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to stay up to date on all our Dream Team activities.




Dreams Come True is honored once again to be supported by the Community Nutcracker and their annual production of the Nutcracker Ballet. Scheduled for December 8th and 9th, this annual holiday tradition will take place at the Florida Theatre. As part of the special event, the Community Nutcracker is partnering to help Dreams Come True fulfill the dream of 9-year-old Sadie. This holiday season we will be collecting toys as part of Sadie’s Stockings. More details to come soon!
