Kids For Wish Kids®

What is Kids For Wish Kids® ?

Kids For Wish Kids is a custom-tailored fundraising program managed by kids, for kids! Each year we partner with thousands of students, schools and youth groups across Colorado to help create more life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. We empower kids with the opportunity to lead and make significant impact in their school and community through leadership, volunteerism, community service and teamwork. Students learn the importance of giving back and see firsthand how their efforts can positively impact the lives of others.

Now more than ever, hope is essential! We are facing a record number of wishes waiting to be granted as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, and we need your help to ensure that no child waits even one unnecessary day to experience the hope and joy that a wish brings. Wishes have proven physical and emotional benefits that can give kids the strength need to fight against and even overcome a critical illness. Your support will bring Make-A-Wish Colorado one step closer to the goal of fulfilling the wish of every eligible child.

We are here to make it easy for you to make a difference. As a Kids For Wish Kids supporter, you will partner with Make-A-Wish Colorado and coordinate a fundraiser to help sponsor wishes for local wish kids.
