We have reached the fundraising finish line. Donations of all sizes are needed, welcomed, and appreciated and will go towards the endowment/maintenance fund.

Become a Jonathan’s Dream Angel

It took 5 years, over $1.200,000 and a lot of hard work to rebuild Jonathan’s Dream.
We are now working on a maintenance program that will assure that the playground will be well maintained for many future generations to come.
Do you wish to join us?
