Our History

Delaware Dreams Founder, Vincent J. DiSabatino

DadwCostume copyDelaware Dreams, Inc. is a small Delaware private foundation established in 1987, by Mr. and Mrs. Vincent J. DiSabatino.

Through the Delaware Dreams, Inc. foundation, Mr. DiSabatino found a way to give back to the local community, often anonymously. Whenever a newspaper article caught his attention of a terrible accident or situation involving a child, he would direct Delaware Dreams, Inc., to send toys, clothes, or financial help for food or other needs.

As the foundation evolved, Delaware Dreams, Inc. began to focus its resources to specific children’s needs such as children with cancer and extreme hardships.  Mr. DiSabatino lost his own courageous battle with cancer in 1996, but his legacy of providing support for children-in-need continues through the Delaware Dreams foundation he so loved.

Continuing the Journey

Mr. and Mrs. DiSabatino’s daughter continues to guide the Delaware Dreams, Inc., private foundation on the course launched by the man who quietly offered a hand to children in need
…. And loved to see a child’s smile.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our generous supporters throughout the years. From the benefactors that have provided reserves and guidance from the beginning to our most recent gracious supporters, please accept our heartfelt gratitude and prayers of thanks.
