$10,000 Goal

We are a 501(c)(3) charity & since 1990, we’ve collected & distributed toys for:

  •  36 Minnesota hospitals
  • 2 Wisconsin hospitals
  • 2 Catholic Charities child shelters
  • 5 Ronald McDonald Houses

 By the aviation community, including:

  • EAA chapters
  • Flying Clubs
  • Minnesota 99s
  • Shriner Flyers
  • MN Pilots Association


  • Businesses, churches, and the general public

Most charities deduct a % of raised funds for administrative expenses.  Not so for TOH!  This is a labor of love -  coordinators & volunteers cover all expenses so 100% of donations go to gifts for hospitalized children.

Tree of Hope began in 1990 when we found out other holiday toy collectors were NOT including hospitals during the holidays, and often the families couldn’t afford presents because of high hospitalization costs.

We need…

  • Donate money — 100% goes to the kids!
  • Gifts for infants to 18-years old!
  • Unwrapped new toys, games, books & $10 gift cards!
  • Become a volunteer!
  • Post a flyer!
