Wish It Forward
Make-A-Wish’s vision is to grant every eligible child’s wish, but we can’t do it without your help! By joining the Wish It Forward movement, you can help Make-A-Wish increase its visibility in the community and raise vital funds to assure that every eligible wish is granted. Please consider helping Wish It Forward in one of the following ways
Share wish photos
Send photos and videos from your wish to [email protected] for a chance to be featured on our social media pages or marketing materials!
Fundraise for future wish kids
- Set up a personal fundraising page on our online platform. Decide your own fundraising goal and invite participants to donate to your campaign with our e-mail templates. Learn more here.
- Participate in an event. Check out our events page to see what’s coming up and how you can get involved!
- Apply to be a Wish Ambassador. This group of wish families is “on-call” to help with important projects like thanking donors, being interviewed by the news, attending events and speaking on behalf of Make-A-Wish Colorado! Email Sarah Murphy at [email protected] for more
Involve your work
- Do you have a connection to a company that may be interested in transforming their workplace into a wishing place? Facilitate an introduction to Make-A-Wish Colorado to help organizations start the wish granting process. Large and small businesses can experience the power of a wish! From joint marketing and employee giving campaigns to direct corporate gifts, companies can engage in our mission in a meaningful way. Email Jeff Krebs at [email protected] for more info.
Connect your school
Is there a school in your community that may be interested in granting wishes? Our Kids For Wish Kids® program is one of our most popular and successful fundraising platforms. Students from schools and universities across the state donate their time and creativity to plan fundraising campaigns to grant wishes for children in their community. Refer your school and our team will do the rest! Email Sarah Grosh at [email protected] for more info.
Plan an event
Use planning guides and marketing templates provided by Make-A-Wish Colorado to plan a successful fundraising event that will unite your community through the power of a wish. From yard sales or benefit concerts to bike races and sports tournaments, the options are endless for families who want to plan a fundraising event.
