Kids for Wish Kids®

Kids For Wish Kids® is a Make-A-Wish® program that enables students to discover philanthropy by selecting their own fundraising project and managing it from start to finish, with little or no help from their teachers. Students develop leadership skills, build self-esteem and learn about teamwork while working towards a final goal, making a difference in the life of a child who is fighting overwhelming odds.

Kids For Wish Kids program objectives:

  • Increase awareness among children and teenagers about the mission of Make-A-Wish Greater Bay Area
