Chapter Facts

If you have ever wondered about our local Make-A-Wish chapter’s past, present and future, you are in the right place! We’re going to give you the facts in 60 seconds:

  • Madysen wished to meet the princesses at Disneyland Resort.With your help, our chapter has granted wishes to nearly 7,300 children since 1986.
  • We grant wishes to children with critical illnesses who are between the ages of 2½ and younger than 18 years old at the time of referral.
  • Currently, we could fill seven school buses with the number of children who are waiting for their wishes and every day, at least one child in Alaska and Washington is diagnosed with a critical illness.
  • 80% of our wishes involve airline travel. 
  • The Make-A-Wish name is very well-known and beloved, but we don’t have all the support that we need to fulfill our vision of a wish for every eligible child. You can help change that with your donations or cash, frequent flier miles or in-kind goods and services, by referring a child or becoming a volunteer
  • We are in need of volunteers, particularly those who speak English and Spanish, in Eastern and Central Washington. We also desperately need volunteers throughout Alaska. Become a volunteer today! 
  • Wishes make the impossible, possible and that translates into real tangible impact for our wish children and their families. In fact, wishes have proven physical and emotional benefits that can give children with critical illnesses a higher chance of survival.

  • Transparency is important to us as we continually strive to improve our processes, our mission delivery and our organization as a whole. Feel free to review our survey results to see how we are doing:
