Periwinkle Foundation

Get Involved

The Periwinkle Foundation is fortunate to have a dedicated group of volunteers, doctors, donors and in-kind contributors who understand how important it is to let Texas Children’s Hospital patients and families leave illness behind, if only for a few days.

Producing these unique camping, recreational and arts & creative writing experiences for children who have been through so much takes many resources. The Periwinkle Foundation office has four paid staff members, otherwise Periwinkle programs are totally volunteer driven with over 300 volunteers giving nearly 27,000 hours a year to ensure the Periwinkle programs continue to change lives.

Volunteer for one-time or recurring opportunities at The Periwinkle Foundation.  We have opportunities with a range of needed skills, from Leadership Development, Accounting, Web and Social Media assistance, running errands, Camp support and more!

Any contribution of time or financial support is greatly needed and appreciated. Your support will provide remarkable experiences for remarkable families!
