Fund A Wish


Everyone involved in fulfilling the wish of a sick child is touched by the magic of the experience…the 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.

Each year, we strive to grant the wishes of all children with life-threatening medical conditions within Mississippi. It all begins with that one simple, yet powerful question.

Each wish provides an opportunity for someone to have a positive effect on our wish kids. You can help a child have a magical, joyful time away from treatments, hospitals, anxiety and fear that are so much a part of their lives, as well as their family’s daily life. Through the Fund-A-Wish program, you get to share the power of a wish®.

The Fund-A-Wish program allows you or your company, employee group, professional club or civic group the opportunity to impact wish kids in Mississippi.

Wishes typically fall into one of four categories:

  • I wish to go
  • I wish to have
  • I wish to meet
  • I wish to be

Our Fund-A-Wish Levels:


Make-A-Wish Mississippi strives to grant the wish of every eligible Mississippi wish child, even when there is an extraordinary circumstance. When wishes occur that greatly exceed our average wish cost, a donation at this level will insure we have the means to accomplish our goal.


Donors at this level help us grant the highest quality wish experience to our children that go beyond our average wish cost. 85% of Mississippi wishes involve travel. Support at this level provides a Mississippi child their one true wish.


A donation at this level allows us to grant the wish of a Mississippi child. On average we grant from 80-100 wishes each year.
