Make-A-Wish Granting Volunteer

Wish Granting Volunteer

1-2 Hours Per Month


Two wish granting volunteers are needed on each wish. Volunteers may work with a specific partner on wishes or with various volunteers located in the same geographical area. As a wish granter, your main duties are to meet with the family, ask the child about his/her desired wish and act as a liaison between Make-A-Wish staff and the wish family during the wish journey. The average time commitment is 1-2 hours per month, per wish. Wishes can take approximately 12-24 months to grant. Each wish journey is unique. Attendance at a training session is required!


More about the organization: 

Make-A-Wish® creates life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. We are on a quest to bring every eligible child’s wish to life, because a wish is an integral part of a child’s treatment journey. Research shows children who have wishes granted build the physical and emotional strength they need to fight a critical illness. Make-A-Wish® is the world’s leading children’s wish-granting organization and has 62 chapters across the United States.


Specific volunteer tasks:


-Meeting with the wish child and their family
-Providing gifts for the wish child and their siblings (we will reimburse for the gifts)
-Checking in with the wish family once a month
-Planning a send-off party for children before they go on their wish
