Make-A-Wish America

About us

Make-A-Wish® creates life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. We seek to bring every eligible child’s wish to life because a wish is an integral part of a child’s treatment journey. Research shows children who have wishes granted can build the physical and emotional strength they need to fight their illness. Headquartered in Phoenix, Arizona, Make-A-Wish is the world’s leading children’s wish-granting organization, serving children in every community in the United States and in more than 50 countries worldwide. Together, generous donors, supporters, staff and more than 35,000 volunteers across the U.S., grant a wish every 34 minutes, on average, somewhere in the country. Since 1980, Make-A-Wish has granted more than 300,000 wishes to children in the U.S. and its territories; more than 15,400 in 2017 alone.

Support Our Wishes in Flight® Program

Nationally, Make-A-Wish® would need more than 2.8 billion miles, or 50,000 round-trip tickets, to cover every travel wish each year. Airfare is our greatest organizational expense. Once donated, your miles will never expire and every mile donated helps wish kids and their families travel to destinations around the world for their life-changing wish experience.
