The Adopt-A-Wish program offers you or your company, school or community group the opportunity to invest in an experience that can alter the course of a child's life forever. 

Experience the joy of helping others during their time of greatest need by becoming a part of the Make-A-Wish Connecticut Adopt-A-Wish Program. 

Every unforgettable wish we grant is funded by organizations and people just like you. These life-changing wishes replace fear with confidence, sadness with joy, and anxiety with hope.

This program provides a unique opportunity to make an immediate, direct and substantial impact on the life of a child. The financial investment provided by our donors and partners ensures that we have the funds available to grant the wishes of every eligible child.  

After making your gift to Make-A-Wish Connecticut, we will dedicate a specific wish to you, your organization, group or company. You will receive the child’s wish story and photo to demonstrate how your generosity helped a wish come true.  

Adopt-A-Wish donations start at $10,000, which is based on the average cost of a wish in Connecticut.

Behind every child’s wish, there are special individuals, corporations, student organizations and foundations that make it possible. By adopting a wish, you provide much-needed funding that will be used to grant the wishes of children with critical illnesses while rallying a team of heroes in your community to make a positive impact.
