Remember what it was like to be young and to dream?
Anything seemed possible.
At the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Illinois, that sense of hope never fades. Since 1985, the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Illinois has worked with parents, volunteers and community members to bring hope, strength and joy to thousands of children with life-threatening medical conditions.
Our goal is to fulfill a wish for every child who qualifies for our program. Giving wish children the power to decide the nature of a wish provides both the recipients and their families with renewed faith, courage and self-confidence. These are not "last wishes" but messages that tell of the hope, joy and magic inherent in every life.
The joyous Make-A-Wish experience takes wish kids and their families on a magical journey away from doctor visits and medical tests.
You have the power to grant a wish. Refer a child, volunteer or support the Make-A-Wish mission with your contribution and share the power of a wish® today!
Make-A-Wish does NOT solict donations through telemarketing or door-to-door.
