Make a difference in a child's life

Help Fill A Dream Foundation

Every day kids have the opportunity to dream, but it's not every day that those dreams are fulfilled. Help Fill a Dream cares about making dreams come true for critically-ill children on Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands.

Golf for Kids is proud and humbled to have been associated with Help Fill a Dream since our very first fundraising event in 1997. Ours has been an incredible partnership for over two decades and it will continue to be as we make the drive towards our 25th anniversary.

Well over 50% of all Dreams filled, and assistance provided to island children and their families, is a direct result of the generosity of Golf for Kids supporters.

Children deserve a chance to simply be kids, and their parents deserve a chance to be mom and dad - not just caregivers.

By working together we can continue to transform your generosity into support that makes meaningful impact on the lives of these kids and their families.

"We are so grateful for this partnership and for Golf for Kids’s continued commitment" - Craig Smith, Executive Director, Help Fill A Dream

 

What is special about Help Fill a Dream

Vision & Mission Statements

  • Local Families

    Since 1986 Help Fill a Dream Foundation has been supporting those families from Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands whose lives have suddenly changed due to their child’s diagnosis with a medical condition or severe health challenge.

  • Dreams Come in all Sizes

    Putting a smile on the face of a child is a magical feeling. Dreams are powerful things for children with life-threatening conditions such as Type 1 diabetes, childhood cancers or cystic fibrosis.

  • Be Part of the Story

    The Help Fill a Dream family grows with every child helped. Recipients become part of an expanding family, staying connected, and becoming volunteers and fundraisers.

About Help Fill a Dream

Helping families face challenging situations

Help Fill A Dream Foundation often comes into the life of a family when things are at their worst. When a child is diagnosed with a life-threatening condition a family’s focus becomes their child, their medical appointments and treatment; there’s no time for anything else. Since 1986 Help Fill a Dream Foundation has been supporting those families from Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands whose lives have suddenly changed due to their child’s diagnosis with a medical condition or severe health challenge.


“Golf for Kids leads the way by demonstrating how a wonderful group of volunteers can come together and make positive impact for children and families in our region. The example set by all involved in Golf for Kids inspires many, including our Vikes students, athletes and coaches, to seek out ways to give back and strengthen our community.”
