The Garden of Dreams Foundation is proud to have been selected as one of the TCS New York City Marathon charity partners. Through this partnership, Garden of Dreams joins an elite group of charities that are associated with the greatest marathon in the world and embraces the opportunity to raise funds to continue to positively impact the lives of children facing obstacles.
The Garden of Dreams Foundation is a non-profit organization that works with The Madison Square Garden Company and MSG Networks, Inc. to positively impact the lives of children facing obstacles. The Foundation works with 30 partner organizations throughout the tri-state area, including hospitals, wish organizations and community-based organizations, to reach children who are facing challenges such as homelessness, extreme poverty, illness and foster care.
Since it began in 2006, Garden of Dreams has used the magic of MSG and MSG Networks – including the Knicks, Rangers, Rockettes, Westchester Knicks, famed showplaces and two sports and entertainment networks – to brighten the lives of more than 375,000 children and their families. The Foundation takes pride in its commitment to truly change lives, hosting more than 500 events and programs each year.
In addition, through its Garden of Dreams Giving program, the Foundation provides grants that fund important projects such as the refurbishment of gymnasiums and pediatric areas at local hospitals, and the construction of new dance and music studios. The Foundation also meets the critical needs of college-bound high school seniors by providing four-year scholarships to help students achieve their educational goals.
