Moments that matter

The Wonderfund works to provide children involved with the MA Department of Children & Families the opportunities, experiences, and essentials that every child deserves.


The Wonderfund is...

A private non-profit organization that works on behalf of the 53,000 children engaged with the MA Department of Children & Families. We provide comfort and dignity to children in traumatic situations and enrich childhoods that have been impacted by abuse and neglect.

Wonder begins with you…

You can help us change the trajectories of children’s lives. You can let these special children know that they matter. You can empower a timid kid to play sports, take dancing lessons, or learn martial arts. You can open the door for kids to reach their potential through SAT prep classes, school trips, or going to STEM camp. You can help us provide children coming into emergency foster care with new pajamas, underwear, comfort items, culturally appropriate food and other essentials.


We invite you to join us in providing hope for a child who has been impacted by trauma, abuse and neglect.

Making Moments that Matter

Last year, the Wonderfund achieved more than 100,000 moments that made a positive difference in the lives of DCF children.

“All kids deserve to have carefree moments to play, to dream and to grow. When a child is neglected or abused, those moments are taken away. The Wonderfund gives them back."
