A Moment of Magic
A Moment of Magic is the original 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that allows college-age students to volunteer at children’s hospitals and social service institutions to provide creative programming. A Moment of Magic operates on the mission of restoring the magic of believing at a time when a child needs to 'just-be-a-kid' and reminding them to be brave, strong, and fearless.
A Moment of Magic began with simple roots; by two college girls in their dorm room. Since then, we have become the largest organization of our kind with 20 chapters all over the United States and 1,000+ volunteers.

The role and value of PLAY increases when the child is hospitalized, as it decisively contributes to emotional, mental well-being, self-confidence and self-esteem. 100% of medical professionals surveyed stated that our services positively impacted the lives of the children we serve.
The money raised from the 2019 Night of Magic Gala enabled us to provide A Moment of Magic to more than 12,000 children across the country. This year, we are aiming to raise more than $60,000, in order to reach more than 12,000 children.
For every $5 we raise, we are able to ensure that a child never has to go through their journey without A Moment of Magic.
