Periwinkle Foundation


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 5 full-time and two-part time, 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.

In addition to our four main fundraisers, you can also support The Periwinkle Foundation through these activities:

Friends of Periwinkle Events - Become a Friend of Periwinkle and attend fun events to volunteer or raise funds for The Periwinkle Foundation.

Periwinkle PlayDates - Host your own play-date that benefits The Periwinkle Foundation.
