Your Passion Can Transform Lives  

Kids For Wish Kids is a unique program managed by kids, for kids. 

Inspiring kids, just like you, can have an impact in right in our community. The Kids For Wish Kids program engages students, schools and youth organizations in philanthropy and service activities in partnership with Make-A-Wish. The program encourages community service, leadership, volunteerism and teamwork. It builds team spirit and gives students hands-on experience fundraising to help create life-changing wishes for kids fighting critical illnesses. 

Kids For Wish Kids puts kids in charge. They take the lead to brainstorm fundraising ideas, create action plans and manage everything from start to finish. Students can even combine their efforts for existing school events, such as spirit week or field day.

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.
