Since our humble beginning in 1984 when we granted 27 wishes, Make-A-Wish® Greater Bay Area has now granted over 6,000 wishes. And each one is about hope and strength and joy.
A life-threatening medical condition is all-consuming for wish children and wish families, often resulting in treatment schedules that leave little time or energy to consider anything else. At Make-A-Wish Greater Bay Area we are focused on being there for these precious children, at the moment they need us most.
In order to ensure we can continue granting wishes to all eligible children–without delay–we need your help. There are many ways to help ensure that we can continue granting magical wishes. Please consider one of the options below.
Volunteering is a great way to help. We invite you to share the power of a wish® whether you can give a few hours each month or a few days each year.
You can help make the wishes of special children come true in your local community when you become a volunteer for Make-A-Wish Greater Bay Area. Our mission is only possible with the dedication of our volunteers.
A wish is granted every 38 minutes. Donate in honor of a loved one, become a monthly giver, and more. Help grant wishes today! We welcome all levels of donation, whether it’s a one-time gift, a monthly donation or the establishment of a matching gifts program.
You can donate by mail, online, at work, as part of a matching-gifts program, and even by purchasing select Make-A-Wish branded products.
Every wish is a unique and memorable experience for the wish child, the wish family and all those who participate in the wish. And many donors say they began their support of Make-A-Wish and its endearing mission after hearing a child’s memorable wish story.
Now you can help create more heartwarming stories for children with life-threatening medical conditions through the Adopt-A-Wish® program. This giving option allows donors to fund a single wish experience in its entirety.
