The Adopt-A-Wish program offers donors the chance to fund the Make-A-Wish® experience of their choice. A member of our staff will help you identify a wish kid based on any number of factors, including geography, medical condition, wish type or age.

Everyone involved in fulfilling the wish of a sick child is touched by the magic of the experience - 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 his or her family.

By adopting a wish, you too can be part of the magic. When you, your company, professional club, or student group chooses to adopt a specific 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. Many donors say they began their support of Make-A-Wish® and its endearing mission after hearing a child’s memorable wish story.

The average cost of a wish is approximately $9,700. Your donation of $1,000 to $9,699 makes you a Wish Partner. Wish Partners fund a wish in concert with other Wish Partners. With a donation of $9,700+, you can be a Wish Maker, and fund a specific child’s wish. 

You can help create more heartwarming stories for children with life-threatening medical conditions through the Adopt-A-Wish program. This giving option allows donors to fund a single wish experience in its entirety. Make-A-Wish covers all costs associated with a wish, including transportation, food, lodging and admission fees for the entire family. We will provide you with a special story about your adopted wish so that you can see how your contribution brings joy to a courageous wish child.
