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 advisers, but ownership of the group belongs solely to the kids involved. Students essentially raise money to fund a child's wish!

Several schools in Mississippi have climbed on board to sponsor wish kids and make their dreams come true!

Become a Sponsor

Make-A-Wish is lucky to have the support of business that give anywhere between $500-$20,000 a year! When events and fundraising opportunities roll around, you too can have a chance to make a contribution of any size-- all of which goes directly to granting a wish of a child in Mississippi!

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.
