Yes. Michael's Dream Foundation Inc. received it's 501(c)3 determination letter on June 29, 2013 which granted us federal tax-exempt status.
Michael's Dream Foundation exists for the purpose of raising the capital and resources needed to improve children's healthcare globally, including the building of at least one new children's hospital.
Although we do not yet have a specific location for the physical hospital itself, it is still our primary long-term goal and we promise to keep everyone updated as we make progress of any kind. Please do add yourself to our mailing list and “Like” our pages on Facebook to make sure you don’t miss any important updates!
These funds are being held in a separate, designated account so when the time comes to move forward with the actual planning for the hospital we will already have some resources to get us started.
We are a very small team of people with full-time jobs, kids and other personal responsibilities and we know that erecting a hospital of any kind is an enormous and complicated undertaking. Since we want to get it right the first time around, our strategy is to first build a strong base for Michael’s Dream Foundation by taking part in smaller, more manageable charitable projects such as the Michael’s Dream Box Program. It is also essential for us in these early stages to continue seeking as much support as possible from people, groups, other charities and organizations around the world which will ultimately strengthen our chances of realizing this Dream of a functioning hospital.
There is much work to be done and the one thing that every person can do to help is simply to spread the word! The farther our reach, the more support we will gain and the better the chances of seeing a children's hospital built in our lifetime.
Teams have become the structure of the Foundation and implemented for 4 key areas; Administrative, Promotions, Fundraising and Public Relations. If you feel you would be interested in helping us in any of these areas, we encourage you to visit the Volunteer section on this website and submit a Volunteer Application to join a team.
