The mission of Make-A-Wish® is to grant the wishes of children between 3 and 18 years old with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.
A wish experience can be a game-changer for a child with a life-threatening medical condition.
This one belief guides us in everything we do at Make-A-Wish®. It inspires us to grant wishes that change the lives of the kids we serve. It compels us to be creative in exceeding the expectations of every wish kid. It drives us to make our donated resources go as far as possible.
Most of all, it's the founding principle of our vision to grant the wish of every eligible child.
Wishes are more than just a nice thing. And they are far more than gifts, or singular events in time. For wish kids, just the act of making their wish come true can give them the courage to comply with their medical treatments.
We believe in the healing power of a wish !
We are dedicated to making every eligible child’s wish come true and enrich them with hope, strength and joy.
We align with the following UN Sustainable Development Goals:
