Help Grant Wishes, Transform Lives


A wish is something exciting to look forward to and can make all the difference to a critically ill child and their family.

When you, your company, professional club, or student group chooses to adopt a child’s wish, you have the opportunity to become connected to the wish experience. Every wish is a unique and memorable experience for the wish child, the wish family and all those who participate in the wish. And many donors say they began their support of Make-A-Wish® and its mission after hearing a child’s memorable wish story. The average cost of a wish in Connecticut is almost $10,000.

Program Support

Kids For Wish Kids
Kids for Wish Kids® is a program that engages kids of all ages (students, youth groups, clubs, sports teams and organizations) in the Make-A-Wish® mission.  The program provides ideas for kids and teens to raise funds to help grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions in their community.

Wish it Forward
We see the wish experience as a journey that continues long after the wish is granted. Wish it Forward is a program that engages Wish Families post-wish by offering opportunities for public speaking, engagement with other Wish Families and activities and events designed to continue their wish experience.

Medical Outreach
We rely on wish referrals from caring individuals to help us reach more kids with life-threatening medical conditions every year and grant them a wish that changes lives, forever. The eligibility consideration process is initiated when a wish referral inquiry is submitted to the local chapter.
