Volunteering at Make-A-Wish

You can help make the wishes of children in our community come true when you become a Make-A-Wish® volunteer. Our mission is possible only with the dedication of our volunteers.

Be a real life superhero! Volunteers are essential to our commitment to bring hope, strength and joy into the lives of children battling life-threatening illnesses. Throughout our territory, volunteers are the faces of Make-A-Wish®  to children, families and donors.


Become a Volunteer Wish Granter!

Wish Granters are absolutely essential to fulfilling each child’s wish and work in teams of two or three to meet with the wish child, help the child determine his or her heartfelt wish, and help plan and fulfill the wish!
