When it comes to raising funds for the Make-A-Wish Foundation® of Mississippi , the only limit is your imagination. Our chapter relies heavily on grassroots community development to fund the wishes of our kids with programs like Kids for Wish Kids®, Wishmakers on Campus® and Wishmakers at Work®. Please contact us if you’re interested in hosting an event in your area, helping us work with schools and businesses or helping us book speaking engagements in your hometown.
Kids For Wish Kids is an extremely popular program for kids because it is managed by kids. Kids For Wish Kids allows kids to build leadership skills by for forming committees, coming up with fundraising ideas and carrying them out. Teachers and parents often serve as advisors, but ownership of the group belongs solely to the kids involved.
Here’s your chance to have tons of fun by helping to make dreams come true for kids with life-threatening medical conditions. As a Wishmakers On Campus volunteer, you can partner with your local Make-A-Wish® chapter and coordinate a fundraiser at your school to help sponsor wishes for wish kids in your community.
