Mission Statement

Together, we create life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses.


People like you help Make-A-Wish Orange County and the Inland Empire bring lasting, positive change into the lives of kids with critical illnesses. Your support makes it possible for us to grant their wishes, giving them a reason to stay strong through treatments and to believe in the promise of a better future.

Though we grant a wish every 34 minutes in the United States, we need to grant a wish every 18 minutes to serve every eligible kid. Every single person who supports us by donating, volunteering or referring a child can be part of our mission. If you would like to learn more about how you can get involved, please message us directly or e-mail us at getinvolved@wishocie.org.

It is a truly rewarding experience. I love the communication with the office, the fact that they work with you hours. I love meeting the children and families and finally, I love those happy smiles when they see us approaching knowing we are there to grant their one special wish!
