The Dream Gala is an annual celebration of the "Power of Baseball" in our community and the primary fundraiser for the Washington Nationals Dream Foundation's year-round charitable work. To date, the Dream Gala has netted $5.7 million in support of the Dream Foundation's mission to improve the lives of children and teen in the Washington, D.C. region.
The Washington Nationals Dream Foundation is committed to improving the lives of children and teens in the Washington, D.C. region by supporting initiatives focused on academics, the arts, nutrition and sports. Through the generosity of Nationals fans and corporate partners, the Dream Foundation is using the power of baseball to provide a world of opportunity for area youth.

Other Ways to Give
50/50 Raffles will be conducted during every Friday, Saturday and Sunday home game, plus other select home games, throughout the regular season. One lucky fan with the winning ticket number will win 50% of the proceeds from each 50/50 Raffle. The other half of the proceeds will benefit the Washington Nationals Youth Baseball Academy and other Dream Foundation initiatives that aim to serve District of Columbia residents.
The annual Jerseys Off Their Backs raffle is a fan favorite. Fans can purchase raffle tickets at Nationals Park during the final homestand for a chance to win a game-worn, autographed player or Manager jersey. Twenty-five winning tickets are drawn on the last Sunday home game of the season.
Fans have the opportunity to support the Dream Foundation while owning a little piece of Nationals Park by purchasing personalized baseballs which are placed on permanent display in the Wall of Dreams, located on the Main Concourse across from the Home Plate Elevator. Fans can donate between $250 and $5,000 to be a part of this showcase in generosity.
Professionally guided tours of Nationals Park are available throughout the season. The cost is $15 for an adult and $12 for seniors, military and children under 12 with proceeds benefitting the Dream Foundation.
