Mission

We grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions.

A life-threatening diagnosis is devastating for wish kids and their families. Wishes are a way to combat that. They are a part of the medical plan of care and the benefits are tangible. In fact, research shows that children who receive a wish have improved health outcomes. For some, a wish is incentive to comply with treatments so they can get healthy enough to experience their wish. For others, it's a distraction; something positive to look forward to.

Currently, more than 500 children are awaiting their wishes. We need your help to deliver the healing and transformative power of a wish to every eligible child.

Your support helps wish kids rise above their illnesses. It gives them hope and healing like nothing else can. You are the key to Make-A-Wish meeting the opportunities that lie ahead. If you stand with us, every eligible child can receive the renewal of a wish experience.
