Kids For Wish Kids®


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.   

For the 2020-2021 school year, we are encouraging local schools to support Make-A-Wish virtually. Right now, more children with critical illnesses are waiting for their wishes than ever before because of the pandemic. They may be struggling with sadness, isolation, and new health concerns, but your school can help give them hope.
