How to Adopt-A-Wish!

Everyone involved in fulfilling the wish of a sick child is touched by the magic of the experience…magic that brings hope, strength and joy to children and their families during a difficult time. A wish is something precious to look forward to and can make all the difference to a sick child and their family.

By adopting a wish you too can be part of the magic. When you, your company, professional club or student group chooses to adopt a specific child’s wish, you have the opportunity to become connected to the wish experience. Every wish is a unique and memorable experience for the wish child, the wish family and all those who participate in the wish. And many donors say they began their support of Make-A-Wish® and its endearing mission after hearing a child’s memorable wish story.

The average cost of a wish is approximately $5,000.  Your donation of $1,000 to $4,999 makes you a Wish Partner. Wish Partners fund a wish in concert with other Wish Partners. Or with a donation of $5,000+, you can be a Wish Maker, and fully fund a child’s wish.

Now you can help create more heartwarming stories for children with life-threatening medical conditions through the Make-A-Wish Foundation’s Adopt-A-Wish program. This giving option allows donors to fund a single wish experience in its entirety. The Make-A-Wish Foundation covers all costs associated with a wish, including transportation, food, lodging and admission fees for the entire family. We will provide you with a special story about your adopted wish so that you can see how your contribution brings joy to a courageous wish child.  We will also be able to invite you to be part of that child’s wish party if applicable.

How We Grant Wishes

There are four steps to granting a wish. Each step builds on the next to help create the amazing experiences that delight wish kids and their families. A wish experience is frequently a source of inspiration for children undergoing difficult medical treatments and a positive force that helps them overcome their obstacles. A wish experience is often more than a dream come true: It’s the catalyst that rekindles their belief in themselves and the promise of their future.
