The National Adopt-A-Wish program offers you the opportunity to invest in an experience that can alter the course of a wish child's life, forever.

A wish is granted, on average, every 38 minutes somewhere in the United States and its territories. Each wish serves as a new beginning for the wish kid and family, to reclaim and resume life on their own terms. Life gets better for everyone involved when a wish comes true.

I returned home from my wish a different person, with a different perspective - and a different appreciation for how important it was for me to truly live the rest of my life, no matter how many years that might be. ”

— Tiffany, a 1998 Make-A-Wish recipient

Adopt-A-Wish Program Participation

Experience the joy of helping others during their time of greatest need by becoming a part of the Make-A-Wish® America Adopt-A-Wish Program.

This program provides a unique opportunity to make an immediate, direct and substantial impact on the life of a child. The financial investment provided by our donors ensures that we have the funds available to grant the wishes of every eligible child. 

After making your gift to Make-A-Wish America, we will dedicate a specific wish to you, your organization, group or company. You will receive a child’s wish story and photo to demonstrate how your generosity helped a wish come true. In addition, you will receive other benefits, including:

  • Membership in the Wish Society, our premier national annual giving society
  • Acknowledgement in the national Foundation annual report
  • The knowledge that your gift brought hope to a child


To learn more about becoming a wish-granting volunteer, please contact your local Make-A-Wish chapter. Students interested in holding a fundraiser in support of a wish can learn more about fundraising programs, or contact your local Make-A-Wish chapter.
