Since it was founded in 1989, Give Kids The World Village has continued to grow and expand in order to continue its mission of providing memorable, magical, cost-free experiences to children with life-threatening illnesses and their families.
Today the Village is a 70-acre resort complete with over 140 Villa accommodations, entertainment attractions, whimsical venues, and fun specifically designed for children with special needs. With the help of many generous individuals, corporations and partnering wish-granting organizations, Give Kids The World has welcomed more than 118,000 families from all 50 states and over 72 countries.
However, the time has come to do some serious work in order for the Village to continue its mission. The villas are in desperate need of renovation and the campus needs an expansion and refurbishment in order to continue to accommodate the growing needs of the children it serves. In February 2013, our hotel's ownership announced they would donate $380,000 toward the construction of two brand-new villas. This incredibly generous gift is in addition to the fundraising efforts we are making now toward renovating two of the existing villas at The Village.
Please consider joining us as we work together to help raise the funds needed to renovate The Village villas. Your donation is tax-exempt and will go directly to Give Kids The World Village. (A receipt will be provided for your tax records) You can also make a donation when you visit our hotel - just ask the front desk for further information.
