How to become a Make-A-Wish sponsor

Make-A-Wish is an organization that actively works towards granting the wishes of critically ill children. Since it was founded, Make-A-Wish has successfully granted 550,000+ children’s wishes. Our organization aims to grant every eligible critically ill child’s one life-long wish come true. This is because granting their wishes gives them joy and hope. Parents of wish kids report improvement in their children’s emotional well-being and health. Therefore, Make-A-Wish makes a huge difference in these children’s lives.

Grant life-changing wishes

Make-A-Wish is a non-profit organization. We are able to grant wishes thanks to our generous donors and sponsors. Sponsors are the backbone of our organization, and through their generosity, we can help more critically ill children have their wishes fulfilled. If you would like to sponsor Make-A-Wish and help become a part of this great cause, here is everything you need to know.

The impact of Make-A-Wish


Make-A-Wish is always working towards making life positive and fun for seriously ill children. When a child is living with a critical illness, it changes their entire life. It poses a physical and a mental challenge for the child. Sometimes these children even have to miss out on fun childhood activities. Therefore, Make-A-Wish tries to help them look beyond their illness. 

Granting their wish gives them the chance to make wonderful memories outside of hospital rooms. Granting wishes may even leave a positive impact on the mental well-being of the critically ill child and motivate them to hope for a healthier, happier life.


The benefits of the Make-A-Wish wish journey

Granting a wish is not simply a moment in time. It is essentially a journey that greatly impacts critically ill children’s lives. We, at Make-A-Wish, find out what the child truly desires and do what we can to make that dream a reality. The impact of this beautiful Wish Journey is huge. It gives the critically ill child an opportunity to look beyond hospital wards and medical testing. Of course, we are very careful in catering to every child’s specific medical requirements.

Moreover, we make sure that they are as comfortable as possible. The Wish Journey is not just refreshing for our wish children but also for their families. It can help improve everyone’s mental health and gives them hope and resilience.

What does it mean to sponsor Make-A-Wish?

Make-A-Wish is immensely dedicated to wish-granting and bringing hope and joy into the lives of children who are living with critical medical conditions. If you run a business and are looking to contribute your profits to a good cause, and make a difference in the world, you can start by sponsoring Make-A-Wish. Sponsoring our non-profit organization is an excellent opportunity for business owners to play their part of wish-granting!

How does sponsoring Make-A-Wish work?

Make-A-Wish is a nonprofit organization that relies on donations and corporate sponsorships to be able to keep granting wishes. Every single penny collected or earned is invested back into the wish journey and making it an extraordinary experience for children living with critical illnesses and their families.

Sponsoring Make-A-Wish means you, the representative of an existing business or corporation, can help us with not only donations, but other tasks that help us with granting wishes.

Sponsors help us with marketing programs and consumer-facing campaigns as well as large donations. Some sponsors help us by granting us access to their specialty. For example, a popular wish at Make-A-Wish is a visit to Disneyland. American Airlines, one of our Corporate Partners, helps us by providing plane tickets to travel to that destination for these wishes.

Why is sponsoring Make-A-Wish important?

Make-A-Wish is a nonprofit organization that relies solely on donations to grant wishes to eligible children who are living with critical illnesses. Corporate sponsorships help us stay in touch with corporations that can provide special help to bring these wishes to reality.

Corporate sponsorships are important because they are what help us establish links with partners around the world who will help us grant each wish. Since Make-A-Wish has 40 Affiliates around the world, we need as many corporate sponsors as possible to help us expand our reach and grant the wishes of many eligible children.

How can I become a Make-A-Wish sponsor?

We are looking forward to having corporate sponsors from places around the world to increase our reach and the possibilities of wishes we can grant. With corporate sponsorships, we have a wider variety of wishes we are financially able to grant, thus helping us spread more joy and happiness around the world to all eligible children.

As a Make-A-Wish Corporate Partner, you would be expected to provide your services voluntarily to support our cause whether it is providing all the means to support a child’s wish, or donating a certain amount of money. A corporate sponsorship would make you a part of our organization and together we can help spread happiness and return a fragment of normal life to kids who are living with critical illnesses.

In what ways can I sponsor Make-A-Wish?

Make-A-Wish has 40 Affiliates globally with plans to expand its reach to more kids who are eligible for their wishes to be granted. You can become a Make-A-Wish corporate sponsor if you live in any of those or another country where we are currently (not) active. Your role as a corporate sponsor will be to help us grant more wishes.

Corporate partners keep in touch regularly to have their company affiliated with Make-A-Wish. If you have access to a particular service that might be commonly asked for as a wish, for example, access to celebrities kids would ask to meet, your services can prove to be very useful for the wish-granting journey.
