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.

Because of your support, we have been able to harness the power of creativity, friendship, and laughter as a tool in healing for more than 46,000 children since the start of the COVID-19 crisis.
On September 17th, we are hosting our biggest fundraiser of the year: our Night of Magic Gala. 100% of all proceeds will benefit the work of A Moment of Magic Foundation.
We have a goal to raise $65,000 to provide creative programming to 13,000 children before the year ends. Now more than ever, every dollar matters.
Funds from the event will help support our newest initiative: Bravery Bag deliveries to children in need. Our Bravery Bags are carefully curated activity kits for children in need. Included are essentials for every day, like a backpack, hand sanitizer, and a mask, and essentials for play like arts and crafts activities, books, and a yoga mat.
Mental health, already a pressing issue for young people, has become an acute concern for millions during the COVID-19 pandemic. While many possible coping mechanisms exist, the most prominent - and powerful - for children is play. By partnering with hospitals and NPO's, we will be able to provide tangible play experiences to positively impact the quality of life of the children that receive them.
When you support this initiative, you are championing the mental and emotional health of children across the country.
Together, we can provide tools to create moments of joy, imagination, and support to improve the quality of life of the children we serve.
