Dell Children’s Trust

Hope begins with you

Dell Children’s Trust

Dell Children’s Trust members are volunteers who leverage their collaborative giving to create impact. Departments and programs within Dell Children’s apply for support and Trust members vote to direct their pooled funds after learning about the front line care needed for children in Central Texas.

As a group, Dell Children’s Trust has granted over $1,415,000 through membership dues, Art of Giving and special projects!  Additionally, Children’s Trust members have been inspired to personally provide philanthropic support to Dell Children’s in excess of over 6 million dollars (outside of Children’s Trust grants).
