Charity of the Month: Make-A-Wish Foundation®

Make A Wish Foundation

Since 1980, the Make-A-Wish Foundation® has enriched the lives of children with life-threatening medical conditions through its wish-granting work. The Foundation's mission reflects the life-changing impact that a Make-A-Wish® experience has on children, families, referral sources, donors, sponsors and entire communities.

A network of nearly 25,000 volunteers enable the Make-A-Wish Foundation to serve children with life-threatening medical conditions. Volunteers serve as wish granters, fundraisers, special events assistants and in numerous other capacities.

The Make-A-Wish Foundation of Illinois grants the magical wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich their spirit with hope, strength and joy at a very difficult period in their lives.  For more information such as how to donate, volunteer, refer a child or to read about local wishes granted, visit
