Volunteers are the heart of our mission!

Together, we create life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. From our humble beginnings with one boy’s wish to be a police officer, we have evolved to be one of the world’s leading children’s charities, serving children in every community in the United States and its territories. With the help of generous donors and nearly 40,000 volunteers, Make-A-Wish grants a wish somewhere in the country every 34 minutes.

Wish Granters work with families over the course of 12-18 months volunteering about an hour a month per wish child.

  • Wish granters are trained individuals who meet with our children to determine their wish.

  • These volunteers work closely with the Make-A-Wish staff to make each wish come true.

  • Wish granters will have the opportunity to meet with wish families virtually (FaceTime, Zoom Meetings, HouseParty, Phone Calls, etc.) or in person.

  • Wishes can be granted in just several days or may take up to a year to complete.

  • A specialized training program is provided before contact is made with a wish family.
  • We serve a large percentage of Spanish speaking with families, and without Spanish speaking wish granters, we are not able to quickly meet the needs of those Spanish speaking families. If you are fluent in both English and Spanish, please consider becoming a wish granter.

Mission Statement

Since 1980, Make-A-Wish has been creating life-changing wish experiences for children with critical illnesses around the world. Wishes have proven physical and emotional benefits that can give children with critical illnesses a higher chance of survival. When a wish is granted, a child replaces fear with confidence, sadness with joy and anxiety with hope. Wishes even reunite families and enrich entire communities. Every eligible child needs a wish to count on!


Wishes are more than just a nice thing! A wish experience can be a game-changer for a child with a critical illness.

This one belief guides us in everything we do at Make-A-Wish (r). It inspires us to grant wishes that change the lives of the kids we serve. It compels us to be creative in exceeding the expectations of every wish kid. It drives us to make our donated resources go as far as possible.

Most of all, it's the founding principle of our vision to grant the wish of every eligible child.

Wishes are more than just a nice thing. And they are far more than gifts, or singular events in time. Wishes impact everyone involved - wish kids, volunteers, donors, sponsors, medical professionals and communities. The impact varies. For wish kids, just the act of making their wish come true can give them the courage to comply with their medical treatments. Parents might finally feel like they can be optimistic. And still others might realize all they have to offer the world through volunteer work or philanthropy.

Whatever the odds, whatever the obstacles ... wishes find a way to make the world better.
