Mission Statement

We provide wish kids with hope through uplifting and rejuvenating experiences refocusing on the joy of life.

We provide lasting support and memories for wish families.

We treat families and associates with dignity and protect their privacy.

We inspire greater community participation in fulfilling Wishing Star's mission.

Description

Established in 1983, Wishing Star Foundation grants wishes to children with life-threatening illnesses between the ages of 3 and 21, living in Eastern and Central Washington and Idaho. A child does not need to be terminal to qualify for a wish.

Wishing Star is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. We are dependent on individual gifts, fundraising, donations, grants and memorials. We are not funded by the government or United Way. Wishing Star is proud to report that only 5% of funds go towards administrative costs.

Besides making the wish experience one of the most memorable times in a child's life, we believe that "once a wish family, always a wish family." We continue to support these families who care for medically fragile children. We provide tickets to fun opportunities knowing that these families struggle emotionally and financially.
