Our People

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has."
-- Margaret Mead

With a small but dedicated staff, we strive to fulfill our mission on a daily basis and continue to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions. Our staff and board work hard to keep the foundation alive and thriving. Our volunteers continuously devote much of their time to help in the office, visit with wish children, and provide constant support.

Kids for Wish Kids®

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. Students essentially raise money to fund a child's wish!
