Adopt-A-Wish 

Behind every child’s wish, there are special individuals, corporations, student organizations and foundations that make it possible. 

Experience the joy of helping others during their time of greatest need by becoming a part of the Make-A-Wish Texas Gulf Coast and Louisiana Adopt-A-Wish® Program. 

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 ensures that we have the funds available to grant the wish of every eligible child.  

Give a child the priceless gift of love, laughter and treasured memories by sponsoring his or her wish. As a wish sponsor, you may receive the list of pending wishes in our territory in order to choose a child you would like to sponsor. You will receive front page recognition in our quarterly newsletter “Best Wishes” and be invited to our next Donor Recognition Meeting to accept your limited edition Wishmaker Award, specially designed by one of our wish children.
