Wonder begins with you...

We need your help to change the trajectory of children's lives.  You can let these special children know that they matter.  You can empower a timid child to play sports, take dancing lessons, or learn martial arts.  You can open the door for kids to reach their potential by taking SAT prep classes, attending a school trip, or going to STEAM camp.  You can help us provide children coming into emergency foster care with new pajamas, underwear, comfort items, and other essentials that children can call their own.  

We invite you to join us in changing the life of a child.  Click here to join us and Help our Kids

Making Moments That Matter

Last year, the Wonderfund achieved more than 100,000 moments of impact for children. 

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

- First Lady of Massachusetts, Lauren Baker
