About Thursday's Child

Children love to dream. Their imaginations transport them to places with unlimited boundaries. They can drape themselves in an old blanket and become a super hero....wear a badge and become a police officer....fly down a snowy hill on a sled and become an Olympic champion....

A child's dreams are endless.

Thursday's Child believes in the importance of a child's dreams. For over 29 years now, the Foundation has made sure that children who face difficult illnesses get a chance to realize a special dream, a family trip to Disney World, a computer to help with school work, meeting an inspiring celebrity, or another wish that is as individual as each little dreamer.

Families face not only their new reality of caring for a seriously ill child, but also a staggering amount of bills related to the child's treatment.

Thursday's Child® was created and is sustained by people who understand the importance of a child's dream. Thursday's Child® works with area pediatric specialists, social workers and members of the community as well as the children's friends and families to make those dreams come true.

Whatever the wish, Thursday's Child's® purpose is to make today better for children struggling to survive. Often these children react as heroes and heroines. While they face problems most adults need not cope with, they still are children. Children have dreams.

Q. How is Thursday’s Child® different from other wish
A. There are several differences.
1. Thursday’s Child® is a local organization, supported by local  contributors and benefiting local children.
2. Thursday’s Child® is all volunteer. It has no salaried staff.
3. It considers and fulfills requests from young adults over age 18, as well as all children under age 18.

Q. What percentage of funds is used for administrative expenses?
A. Thursday’s Child’s® bylaws limit administrative expenses to 10% of its total contributions.

Q. Where does the money come from?
A. Most of Thursday’s Child’s® contributions come from individuals. Also very important to Thursday’s Child’s® success
are community groups and area businesses who initiate and sponsor fund raising events to specifically benefit the organization.
