Our Volunteers

Make-A-Wish® is able to fulfill its mission because of its volunteers.

Each year, nearly 25,000 volunteers contribute to our mission of granting wishes.

Share the power of a wish® by giving your time.

A grinning 9-year-old named Timmy rushed into his grandma’s arms and exclaimed that Make-A-Wish® was going to send him to the Walt Disney World® Resort to meet Goofy, his favorite character.

Volunteer Eric Miller

Eric Miller

All Korde expected was a tour of the General Motors Fairfax plant in Kansas City, Kan., and a chance to meet the auto workers restoring his 1983 El Camino. By day’s end, he'd done much more.

Matt Terry

Matt Terry

You’ll have to forgive Matt Terry if he had an early moment of doubt. He’d barely left the garage as a Make-A-Wish® volunteer when he felt a thunk in his wish-granting engine.

Traci Walton
