There’s no better way to truly experience the magic of a wish than by adopting one.

Through the Adopt-A-Wish program, individuals, companies, schools or organizations underwrite the cost of an actual wish at our chapter’s average wish cost of $7,500. Our average wish cost excludes in-kind donations and services, with these included our average wish cost is $10,000. One hundred percent of your donation is used to cover the cost of the wish. 

For contributions of $2,500 - $7,499, you will be recognized as a Wish Maker and your donation will be pooled with other Wish Makers to completely fund a wish. All Adopt-A-Wish donations are listed in an issue of our quarterly newsletter and in our annual report (unless you wish to remain anonymous).

As a special thank you we will present you with a beautiful plaque with a complete description of the wish you funded along with a photograph. We can also arrange for a Make-A-Wish representative to personally deliver the plaque.
