Kids for Wish Kids

Your Passion Can Transform Lives

Southgate Students

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

Inspiring kids, just like you, can have an impact 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.

Why should your school participate? 

This program encourages community service, leadership, volunteerism and teamwork. It helps build school spirit and creates partnerships outside of the classroom while providing students hands-on experience fundraising to help create life-changing wishes for kids fighting critical illnesses.
