Gifts of goods and services are a critical way to stretch available resources, enabling Mkae-A-Wish to reach more and more children with a life-changing wish experience each year. Donations of frequent flier miles, hotel points, construction services, and many other wish-specific items are needed to make special wishes come true for children in Illinois.
Additionally, Make-A-Wish collects gift cards to help defray the costs of shopping spree or travel wishes. Gift cards from stores like Best Buy, WalMart, Target, and Toys R Us are most appreciated.
To contribute frequent flier miles, donate online here or contact us for information or to arrange a miles drive at your company.
For questions about other wish-related in-kind donations or if you are interested in hosting a gift card drive, contact Megan Flynn, Wish Granting Program Manager at 312.602.9431. Download a Gift Card Drive Agreement and Holiday Gift Card Flyer.
Gifts of stock, properties or insurance can be beneficial to the long-term financial needs of Make-A-Wish Illinois. For information on how to transfer these and other types of planned gifts to the Make-A-Wish Illinois, we ask you or your financial advisor to contact Linda Parck at 312.602.9420.
Many doctors tell us that a wish is powerful medicine. The doctors provide the medicine and we provide the magic!
