Make-A-Wish as a non-profit organization

With the help of local communities and our valuable donors, Make-A-Wish grants the wishes of thousands of children globally. These children are living with life-threatening illnesses that are seriously challenging for not only the children, but their families too. Every child, while growing up, has dreams and wishes. 

The wishes of each eligible child are looked upon in great detail. If the child is eligible, our wishgranters start work on co-ordinating the resources and activities of various departments to grant the wish.

The definition of a non-profit organization


Make-A-Wish is a non-profit organization that functions solely through generous donations from its supporters. These donations are used to help grant the wishes of wish children waiting. We understand that when a child is living with a life-threatening illness, it impacts the life of the child and also the lives of their loved ones.


Is Make-A-Wish a non-profit organization?

Donations by our generous supporters grant the wishes of seriously ill children. Our transparency and honesty enable us to grant the wishes of these children and bring joy back in their lives.

This has also enabled us to gain many generous and valuable donors. We owe it to our donors and our volunteers, as without them, we would not have been able to grant wishes to thousands of children globally every year.


How to refer a wish kid

If you want to grant the wish of a child living with a critical illness, you need to visit the official website of your local Make-A-Wish Affiliate. You can access the application form and fill it in online. Once you have gone over the eligibility criteria, you can submit your form. The eligibility criteria clearly outlines all the basic details our organization requires, including the medical professional’s report regarding the health of the child. From here on, your application will be sent to our team, and they will get in touch with you to get more information about the child and their wish.
