Make-A-Wish North Texas grants wishes of children with life threatining medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.
Our goal is to be a unique part of the treatment process. With doctors providing the medicine, and the Make-A-Wish Foundation supplying the magic, we strive to create miracles in the lives of some very special children.
The Make-A-Wish Foundation of North Texas is part of the nation's largest and most well-established wish-granting organization, with chapters and volunteers throughout the U.S. and abroad. We draw on that strength, as well as our vast local network, to make a child's dream a vivid and memorable reality. Every fulfilled wish represents a unique collaboration between wish families, medical professionals, volunteers and donors. The Make-A-Wish Foundation provides the structure, but it is the child's request that determines what we will do.
The Make-A-Wish Foundation of North Texas covers 161 counties. With the increase in public awareness, we are granting more and more wishes in our outlying areas. We expect the number of wishes granted to exceed 570 in 2015.
The Make-A-Wish Foundation of North Texas is a 501(c)(3) tax exempt not for profit corporation.
