About Make-A-Wish Wisconsin

Make-A-Wish is the largest wish-granting charity in the world, with 62 chapters in the United States and its territories and 40 affiliates in nearly 50 countries on five continents. Our mission is to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.

With the help of generous donors and a network of more than 33,000 volunteers, Make-A-Wish grants a wish every 35 minutes, and has granted more than 300,000 wishes nationally.

100% of the children who medically qualify according to their doctors receive a wish, so long as they are between the ages of 2½ and 18 at the time of their referral and have never received a prior wish from any wish-granting organization.

Since the founding of Make-A-Wish Wisconsin in 1984, more than 6,300 families have experienced the transformative power of a wish. This year, we are on track to grant more than 400 wishes. Learn more about ways to get involved at
