Make-A-Wish® Greater Bay Area was founded in 1984. In its first year, a total of 27 wishes were granted. Now one of the largest chapters nationwide, we have granted over 6,000 wishes to date and grant over 340 wishes per year.
Make-A-Wish® Greater Bay Area serves 17 counties: Alameda, Contra Costa, Del Norte, Humboldt, Lake, Mendocino, Napa, Marin, Monterey, San Benito, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Cruz, Santa Clara, Siskiyou, Solano and Sonoma.
It takes a committed, skilled team to bring life to one of the world’s most-beloved children’s charities.
Make-A-Wish® has enriched the lives of children with life-threatening medical conditions for over 3 decades.
We recruit and retain smart, passionate people. Learn more about working at Make-A-Wish® and check out open positions and internships.
