About Us

Every 37 minutes Make-A-Wish® grants the wish of a child diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition in the United States and its territories.

We believe that a wish experience can be a game-changer. This one belief guides us in everything we do. It inspires us to grant wishes that change the lives of the kids we serve.

But locally, one in four seriously-ill children in Alaska and Washington does not receive a wish because they are not being referred to our program. With greater funding and capacity, we can change this. With your support, we can provide life-changing and transformational wishes to all qualifying children in Alaska and Washington.

Making a Difference

Each wish granted extends beyond the wish itself—bringing hope, strength and joy to the children we serve, their families and our entire community.

The Make-A-Wish® Story

Make-A-Wish is the legacy of Chris Greicius, a 7-year-old boy from Phoenix. His police officer wish inspired an unprecedented kind of charity.

The Impact of a Wish

We witness the impact of a wish on a child every day. What sometimes goes unseen is the lasting power of a wish beyond the moment it’s granted.
