The Make-A-Wish Foundation is the nation's largest wish-granting organization. It has fulfilled the wishes of more than 193,000 children in the United States and its territories since 1980. Based in Phoenix, the Make-A-Wish Foundation serves every community in the United States, Guam and Puerto Rico through its 65 chapters.
A network of nearly 25,000 volunteers enable the Make-A-Wish Foundation to serve children with life-threatening medical conditions. Volunteers serve as wish granters, fundraisers, special events assistants and in numerous other capacities.
As the Foundation continues to mature, its mission will remain steadfast.
We grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.
Wish children of the past, present and future will have an opportunity to share the power of a wish®.
