Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
We foster hope, community and lasting memories by granting wishes for children with life threatening conditions and supporting their families beyond the wish.
Established in 1983, Wishing Star Foundation grants wishes to children with life-threatening illnesses between the ages of 3 and 21, living in Spokane, Tri-Cities and local outlying areas. 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 8% 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.
